PSYDEH announces that it will begin its search for our first Sustainability Coordinator in the 3rd quarter of 2018.
As background, PSYDEH was founded in 2007 by four women professionals to serve women and girls while promoting local sustainable human development.
Seven years later, we evolved our strategic foundation (mission, vision, values and strategic directions) with the goal of becoming a sustainable enterprise crafting a scalable model to make a lasting social impact.
As evidenced by our 2017 Annual Report, we’ve made strong progress over the last four years.
To make further progress towards our goals, we must invest in a full-time staff person dedicated to creating PSYDEH’s sustainability plan and exploring with women-led organizations how they can do the same.
PYSDEH’s Sustainability Coordinator will focus on four important areas: crowdfunding, impact measurement, social enterprise incubation and social capital.
CROWDFUNDING: Direct a large-scale international crowdfunding campaign in 2018-2019. The Coordinator will leverage PSYDEH’s top 3% partner status in US-based GlobalGiving’s network, and new communications and donor target learning from our collaboration with Dentsu Aegis Network.
SOCIAL IMPACT MEASURING: Implement a new monitoring and evaluation protocol to improve PSYDEH’s on-the-ground social impact, based in part on ongoing PSYDEH participation in the GlobalGiving Social Impact Academy.
SOCIAL ENTERPRISE: Incubate a new social enterprise for our nascent Network of women-led organizations, by joining PSYDEH, women partners, and national and international private-and public-sector collaborators.
SOCIAL CAPITAL: Produce a social capital building initiative to link PSYDEH and our women partners with 15 Mexico City-based businesswomen and men. We will share experiences and resources needed to continue making progress towards our respective missions.
PSYDEH is excited about this 2018 investment in organizational sustainability, and our anticipated enhanced capacity to make a sustained social impact. *Check this space later in 2018 for more developments.
