Rohnert Park, California — Sixteen (16) professional consultants and twenty (20) non-profits come together to: give the consultants some challenging work, and; provide some needed support and help to the non-profits who are serving social change initiatives; the disadvantaged, etc.
All of this was done without: government support; grants; a supporting non-profit organization or corporate sponsorship. Refreshing? You can do this too! .
Using a variant of Open Space Technology to create a “marketplace” and encourage connections between Non-Profits and Consultants, the Group’s members produced new alliances.
Sonoma Mountain Business Cluster a Minerva Project client and emerging non-profit, was the host site for this endeavor.
Purpose of Minerva Project is to:
provide an opportunity for undermployed consultants to share their expertise …while keeping their skills sharp
Our Partner: The Minerva Project is a collaborative, an effort.
It is governed by ethics and integrity and a belief that teams are
smarter than individuals. It is a partnership with the Center for
Community Engagement (CCE) at Sonoma State University.
