OneJustice is excited to launch the Organizational Change Accelerators (OCA), a series of workshops dedicated to coaching legal aid groups in key areas of organizational development: Pro Bono, Research and Evaluation, and Innovation. In this five month program - comprised of classroom lecture, small group work, and action planning - participants learn frameworks to apply to their work, and implement a Capstone Project to strengthen their nonprofit in one of the key areas. This process is facilitated by OneJustice senior staff with multidisciplinary backgrounds and experience in legal aid settings.
- Learn best practices for improving organizational performance and increasing impact
- Accelerate completion of a priority project for your organization via Capstone Project
- Receive one-on-one coaching to support Capstone Project implementation
- Receive a Specialized Skills Certificate
- Earn MCLE credits (Pro Bono Accelerator only)
In these volatile times, legal aid nonprofits can increase and sustain impact by investing in organizational development. Certain features of organization behavior -- e.g. data-driven decision making, continuous improvement, collaboration across sectors -- can lead to work that is more nimble, client-centered, and strategic. Unfortunately, organizational development is a discipline that is neither taught in law schools, nor part of minimum continuing legal education. Seeing this gap, OneJustice seeks to strengthen the legal aid sector by offering topical resources.
