Exclusive screening of Failing Forward

June 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

You’re invited!
Join us for an exclusive screening of
Failing Forward.
June 13th, 5:30-7:00 PM

 

Failing Forward is a new documentary short that explores destigmatizing failure, re-framing social impact and empowering nonprofits.

When it comes to data, the pressure is on. Grantees need to justify their funding, and funders need to justify their grants. “I need data to prove this works!” is the common refrain, but it is also a trap, with all stakeholders feeling pressure to make their numbers look good. But what if we saw failure in a new light?

What if we promoted a culture of continuous learning and improvement, and re-framed so-called “failures” as necessary steps on the road toward meaningful, measurable, sustainable change, i.e. social impact?

Failing Forward is a compelling case study examining how nonprofits can embrace and use failure to grow and improve when they are given that space by their funders and stakeholders. Drawing from a dozen interviews with the staff, board members, funders, and clients of LifeWorks — a prominent Austin, Texas, social service provider working to end youth homelessness in Austin– and narrated by filmmaker and social sector strategist Kate Robinson, this documentary short destigmatizes failure in the social sector, demonstrating that risk, rapid iterations, and continuous improvements are all necessary components on the path to achieving true social impact.

 

 Hosted by SVP Seattle
The screening will include refreshments and a panel discussion with the filmmaker and the star of the film. Space is limited.
