Revision as of 16:32, 19 June 2019

Digital Square is expanding engagement and support to all approved global good implementers through our Notice cycles as well as our request for application (RFA)s (non-Notice cycle awards). In March 2019, we began offering monthly Global Good Webinars for the global good innovator community. The topics of the webinars range from technical, operational, and communications topics. Digital Square intends for these webinars to be an opportunity for the community to share, learn, and engage both with each other as well as the Peer Review Committee members, who are also invited to these webinars.

Global Good Webinars

Upcoming Webinars

  • June 27, 2019: This webinar will embrace advocacy and communications, highlighting how you can leverage your Digital Square approval status in your resource mobilization and advocacy efforts. We will hear from one of our partners who will share an example of how they have used their status in their own resource mobilization efforts and pitches to donors.

In this webinar, we will also share with you some important updates to our wiki. We are making available information you have been asking for, increasing the transparency about approved global goods and the basket of services offered to approved global good innovators. This wiki update is part of our wiki refresh, which includes the Grants and Contracts Basics resources we shared during our last webinar.

Last but definitely not least, we will feature the newly released Global Goods Guidebook and walk you through how to use the Guidebook to market your global good. USAID Digital Health Lead, Merrick Schaefer, will be on-hand to share his perspectives and insights of the version 1.0 of the Global Goods Guidebook.

We anticipate having time for Q&A following the presentations. If you wish to invite your organization communications colleagues to join this call, you are welcome to forward the Outlook invite their way! If you wish to add anyone from your organization or team to our webinar and Global Good Newsletter mailing list, please contact Caitlin Bowman at cbowman@path.org.
