Strategic Framework

The Board of Directors of Powerful Voices is pleased to present our Strategic Framework. In 2014, Powerful Voices was ready to re-evaluate the changing environment for girls and nonprofit organizations. We chose to use the Real Time Strategic Planning model to develop tools to inform ongoing strategic thinking and action. This progressive model of planning honors both Powerful Voices experience and our commitment to creating innovative change with girls.

Our Board of Directors listened to the voices of volunteers, staff, girls, partners, donors, and other thought leaders from education, business, and government sectors. These conversations guided work to solidify our identity, define our impact and refine strategy for the future. The Real Time Strategic Planning model sees strategy formation as a continuous cycle. Our Board of Directors is committed to using this framework as a source of inspiration to guide our work.
