Their name is based on their premise that inside every international relief or development NGO there are core professionals who provide the structure and expertise to support the reach and impact of their organization. They are dedicated to strengthening operational teams and fostering leadership in the international non-profit sector.
An international NGO community where operational excellence and professional expertise come together to help change the world
InsideNGO is a collaborative community that strengthens the operational and management capacity of the international development and relief non profit community in the pursuit of global development.
WHAT THEY DOSector-specific Training, Benchmarking, and Advocacy
Over 4,000 participants benefit annually from 50+ workshops, an annual meeting, webinars, and over 30 peer roundtables. They conduct surveys for HQ and expat compensation and benefits, indirect costs, software use, and spot surveys. InsideNGO is a forum that links your voice with those of your colleagues to speak with influence when commenting on OMB Circulars and other relevant government regulations as they are proposed. Advocacy efforts to improve the effectiveness of USAID and Department of State policies and procedures continue apace. We are respected by key staff at these agencies and meet regularly to discuss and resolve issues.
Resources and Networking
InsideNGO is all about strengthening the “inside” staff of international NGOs. Their strength is in the involvement of their members. Members of InsideNGO are able to ask questions and share relevant resources and practical tools that are unique to their community. This is accomplished through Listservs, a resource library, and member contact lists as well as roundtables. Members select meeting topics, set the advocacy agenda, present at workshops and annual meetings, share their policies and procedures, and work together to develop useful resources.
