Lisa Kolody – OrgWise Self-Assessment
Lisa Kolody, Director of Programs & Operations at the Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County, explains that the OrgWise tool was an important opportunity to self-reflect and integrate it as part of her agency’s strategic planning process. By working with the executive director, senior managers, and the board of directors, Lisa’s agency examined the results of the assessment and created action plans to address priority areas. Her team utilized the various electronic resources and OrgWise tools to standardize best practices and tailor templates to the unique needs of the Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County. Lisa ends by explaining that completing the OrgWise self-assessment and using the associated tools are important for developing improved capacity of agencies, but it is also a process in building capacity in the community.
