Join the Small International Development Charities Network (SIDCN) all day on 21st June 2023 for their free online event as part of Small Charity Week. You can expect peer learning opportunities, speakers, networking and workshops.

This year’s headline speaker session is delivered by Partnership Bureau. The session “Shift The Power: Principled Power Protocols Session” aims to enhance awareness and implementation of Shift The Power (STP) principles among SIDCN members, fostering a culture of empowerment and collaboration within the network.

Partnership Bureau has developed a set of concepts, tools and training focused on Shifting the Power, by exploring how power dynamics present themselves between actors in the development space across the global north and south; how equitable practice can be developed for greater impact; and how how access can be developed more contextually to support diversity and inclusion.

At SIDCN Fest they will be focusing its activity on Principled Power Protocols. A tool developed to understand how power plays an integral part in development contexts and affects the relationship between intent and actual impact.

The session will be interactive with opportunity for members to work together in breakout rooms, with the ultimate objectives being

  • Increase awareness and understanding of what Shift the Power means
  • Provide an overview of Principled Power Protocols (PPP) and how they can be applied
  • Empower members to take action and implement PPP to support Shifting the Power, and
  • Promote Peer-Focused support and accountability.
