Scaling of development impact – learning and exchange session

Do you dream of increasing the social impact of your organization? Are you eager to connect with fellow practitioners to explore strategies for scaling? If so, join us to learn more about the opportunities and pitfalls of scaling.

  • Date and time 16 April 2024, 15:00 - 16:30 GMT+1
  • Where Online, via Zoom
  • For whom Anyone interested in why and when to introduce scaling strategies to maximise social impact.


As we approach 2030, only 15% of the SDGs have been achieved. Despite the efforts to create a more equal and climate-just world, we are falling short of our goals. We need to scale our response to the problems we are facing.  While the potential impact of scaling is immense,  organizations struggle to create workable strategies, shift mindsets, and attract skills and resources to support the transition into scale. Having said this, it’s never been more important to understand the potential scaling has to increase your organizations impact.   

To support community learning, Partos, War Child, Max Foundation and Rutgers are joining forces to organise an online session about scaling for social impact. We aim to facilitate an active exchange on experiences and approaches for scaling social impact in cross-sector partnerships (public, private, social enterprises). 


Scaling for Maximizing social impact – learning and exchange session 

In this session we will dive into different scaling strategies and learn how INGOs and other social-impact organisations have applied scaling to effect positive change. 

With an expert panel consisting of Michele Ernsting (War Child), Marjolijn Wilmink – (Max Foundation) and Ardan Kockelkoren (Rutgers) we will explore principles and real-life cases to answer key questions like: 

  • What does scaling mean in the non-profit sector?  
  • What are the steps/stages in scaling?
  • What are the different ways in which you can scale? 
  • What are guiding principles of scaling?  

Programme outline
