As I approach my first anniversary on the job and as we move into the lunar New Year (and Spring here in New York), it feels like a time for reflection and renewal. One of the highlights of this past quarter was the opportunity to meet up with all the AC staff from our Beijing and Bangkok offices – it’s a rare opportunity when we can all be together – to engage in our strategic planning process. The six-day process was both painful (considering the political climates in which we work) and exhilarating, given how smart, dedicated, and lovely is each of our staff members. The team worked to review and revise the organization’s mission and vision, develop a two-year plan, and develop an organizational “Theory of Change” to reflect our actual and aspirational work.
