Deadline for proposals: October 15, 2015
Sign up to learn more about the conference topic and proposal process, and to talk through your session ideas. What's new, improved, or different in human rights advocacy and grantmaking? What would you like to tackle with a little help from your friends?
IHRFG's 2016 San Francisco Conference (January 20-22, 2016) will showcase how human rights philanthropy can most effectively "up its game" and feature new and different actors, strategies, perspectives, and tools in human rights grantmaking.
In the spirit of innovation, we are aiming for a "panel-free" conference, and urge proposal writers to experiment with novel and creative formats in their sessions. Do you and your colleagues face a common, entrenched problem? Lead them in a "strategy-storming" session to come up with approaches and action steps to tackle it! Is there a skill or practice that you think your peers would benefit from? Share it in a "skills-share" session! What new tools and strategies in technology, organizing, movement-building, or communications have you come across? Present it at our Innovation Expo. Let's take the field to a new level by disrupting or changing the curve on social change. Share your innovations in San Francisco.
