DSi is working on a new strategy for our organisation.

This is essential to make sure we have a clear vision and plan for the next few years.

The strategy will include:

  • Our values and vision for how we want the world to be;
  • A Theory of Change, which describes all the change that contribute to our vision for the world;
  • A plan for what we will do in the next few years to contribute to this change.

Our first step has been to get feedback and ideas from stakeholders in our network.

We have spoken to:

  • Staff and board members;
  • Our Ambassadors Committee;
  • Many of our member organisations around the world.

The stakeholders had lots of suggestions for new or improved ways we can work.

Some of these include:

  • Finding ways for member organisations to support each other;
  • More joint global advocacy work with the whole network;
  • Linking up self-advocacy groups around the world;
  • More sharing of good practices from around the world.

We are now reviewing a draft Theory of Change with our board and Ambassadors.

We are also working on the plan and will get feedback on it all from our member organisations.

We are excited to share more about our new strategy in 2023!
