FinMango spearheaded a strategic planning team that consisted of eight thoughtfully picked Mangoes – Katherine Lordi
, Ojasvinee Singh
, Bruna Chixaro
, Tobias Abramenk
o, Gautham Kannam
, Avneesh Sawhney, Dominic Julian
, Scott Glasgow
– and one facilitator – Chris Shannon
. Each member was carefully selected based on their availability and skill sets related to project management, communication, stakeholder voice, and membership voice.
The goal of the team was to consider where the organization was; what we wanted to see happen over the next five years; and formulate a plan for how to achieve the goals. A BIG component of the process was assessing our past mission and adjusting as needed to ensure it’s aligned with the impact we are seeking to achieve.
PREVIOUS MISSION: to make financial literacy and inclusion universally accessible and useful.
During the strategic planning process, our time was spent surveying, mapping the financial education ecosystem, creating empathy maps, and conducting supplemental research. We did this to identify a potential target population, define the problem we are trying to solve for that population through our collective efforts, and to use this information to revise our mission statement and draft a vision statement to guide our work in the coming years.
