Table Hotspot: Inserting good governance into highly political processes

Attendees at the 2016 AIGM Grantmaking in Australia Conference participated in a lively series of Table Hotspot sessions.

Each session saw delegates gather with fellow funders to discuss and reflect on one of 10 grantmaking topics.

The Hotspots allowed like-minded funders to tackle a grantmaking issue, discuss how they've faced it and share techniques to address it.

When examining how funders could insert good governance into highly political processes, grantmakers kept referring back to the importance of transparency.

"Strong voices and champions for transparency and process are important. And there has to be a spread of them so they are not lone voices which are easy to ignore."
