FEMLINKPacific Organisational Assessment
FemLINKPACIFIC is a feminist media and broadcasting organisation established in September 2000 and is registered under the Charitable Trust Act in Fiji. FemLINKPACIFIC seeks to empower women, the disabled and the under-served communities in Fiji by creating an enabling environment for their voices to be heard. The organisation is a leading advocate of UNSCR 1325, community media and of women, peace and human security concerns.
What was required
FemLINKPACIFIC required an Organisational Assessment and Review with an immediate goal of improving the governance of the organisation. Specifically, the team were looking for:
- Relevant information to support organisational learning.
- A baseline assessment of the organisation in key areas: leadership and strategy; structure and governance; processes and human resources; and relationships, including networks.
- Recommendations and strategies to guide future organisational development.
The Accuteque team ran the project over the course of 6 weeks, relocating one of their team to Fiji for some of the duration. Here we undertook activities such as workshops, interviews (group and individual), and document reviews.
What we did
Accuteque assessed the team’s organisational effectiveness and provided detailed findings relating to the strengths, vulnerabilities and weaknesses and opportunities. This assessment culminated in a series of recommendations to strengthen the organisation and promote change.
Upon completion of the project, IWDA were overwhelmed by the outcome:
“I have to say that it has been an absolute pleasure working with both Anne and Lesley. They are incredibly professional, kind and have been such a support to us and our partner FemLINK through this process. We certainly feel it has been a rewarding experience for us as well and would like to continue the relationship into the future.”
