Shifting the power to the people you exist for


We have a responsibility to ensure that we recognise and respect the power of the people we exist for. In the context of our work at Raising Futures Kenya, as a White/Western led INGO, we have a responsibility to acknowledge and minimise our power in this space both as individuals and as an organisation.

In recent years we have taken steps to address power imbalances at Raising Futures Kenya. In this 20-minute webinar we take a look at the concept of ‘shift the power’, and why it is so important for us as socially purposed organisations, especially those working in global solidarity. Vic and Mary will share some honest personal reflections and practical advice from their journey to shift the power, from the last four years.

Key learnings from this session:

  • What ‘shifting the power’ really means for us as individuals and organisations
  • Practical tips to shift the power to those we exist for
  • Where to go to for support on your shift the power journey


Speakers are added to our events as we receive their details and are updated continuously. These events achieve the goals set out in our EDI commitment.
