Leaders have to understand the need to embrace a more value-focused, stakeholder-based approach. Instead of Shareholder value, the emphasis should be on Creating Value for all Stakeholders, a concept that nests at the core of Ethical Capitalism. When implemented in letter and spirit, this leads to a significant social impact. The program will highlight the seven sets of stakeholders in every enterprise and look at the simultaneous achievement of their aspirational needs using the 4W - 1H model, which lies at the heart of the Quadruple Bottom Line. If we are to achieve the goals of the SDGs and achieve Global Parity, if we are to attempt to reverse the ravages of the Climate Crisis, then Creating Value through Social Impact stands out as one of the significant strategies in these efforts. This workshop will attempt to introduce the ideas of Value Creation for Social Impact and stimulate thought processes that can make interventions more impactful in their application.
Trinayani’s Towards Inclusion workshop is a unique and out-of-the-box workshop that opens the minds of people towards tolerance, kindness, and empathy. It endeavors to reach out to the audience to step out of restricted boxes and amalgamate with people who live different lives with them. One of its significant attributes is the usage of a toolkit called the Trinayani’s Towards Inclusion Disability Awareness 6-in-1 card Game kit that has an array of six different types of games that are based on fun and familiar games which we all have played in our lives. Each card game focuses on busting myths, building knowledge, addressing stereotypes, biases and changing attitudes to slowly and steadily erase the compartments that bifurcate our society into ‘us’ and ‘them’. Join us to build a community that not only shares space in this world but also shares thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and values to learn and gain something new, different, and life-changing, each and every day.

Nonprofits and other social organizations thrive by establishing strong relationships with their supporters and beneficiaries. A comprehensive nonprofit data-management strategy contributes significantly to the success of engagement with their stakeholders. Data management covers pretty much the entire lifecycle of the data.

Digital transformation is needed to have better operational functions that allow you to cut waste, create value and increase efficiency. How do we acquire the data we need? How do we access the Digital Maturity of the organization? How do we build collaborations and capacity for this transformation?
