According to the Nonprofit Finance Fund's annual survey of more than 1,900 nonprofit leaders in markets nationwide, there is a rising demand for nonprofit safety net services and a lack of adequate resources to meet the needs of society's most vulnerable. It is against this backdrop that Omega Institute awards a number of grants to our nonprofit peers, allowing them to attend Service Week, a one of a kind, free strategic planning and networking retreat on Omega's 195-acre Rhinebeck campus.

Omega Institute Thinking Outside of the "Man Box": An Interview With Tony Porter
An Interview With Tony Porter
Omega: What exactly is a “man box” and how does it serve, as well as inhibit, manhood?  Tony: The “man box” is how men have been collectively socialized to understand what it means to be a man. It doesn’t mean that all men respond in the same way to this collective socialization but it does mean that all men have an understanding of this socialization. More
The Pathway to a Civilization of Love
“The future of humanity will be decided not by relations between nations, but by relations between men and women.” Whether or not D. H. Lawrence was overstating the case in making this prophetic pronouncement, he was pointing to something very real. The crisis in relations between women and men is of massive proportions and is creating profound misery for literally billions of people across the planet. More
Omega Institute Share Your Light With the World by Gabrielle Bernstein
You probably don’t talk up your own awesomeness on a regular basis—if ever. Most of us, especially women, have been taught to see anything more than “quiet” confidence as boasting. In many cases the brighter we shine, the more negative reactions we receive: maybe your big promotion made you the target of office gossip, or you became a Pilates rock star and were met with more backhanded compliments than congratulations. These kinds of experiences lead us to lose sight of our talents and inner spark, which in turn deprives the world of our greatness. More
Omega_Institute_How_to_Be_Happy_or_How_We_Serve_by_Beryl_Bender_Birch
One day in late March I turned on the television looking for a weather report and happened upon Matt Lauer and the rest of the Today crew perched in front of the Vatican Palace in Rome, covering the inaugural Mass of Pope Francis. The new pope was riding along through the crowds in an open-air vehicle, waving to his well-wishers. At one point the procession stopped, the pope jumped out of the car and ambled into the crowd to greet and bless a severely disabled person. It was a glorious moment. More
When exploring the challenges men and women face in the workplace, men will often state that women ask too many questions. Some men even say it’s their top challenge, especially during meetings when they view women’s questions as slowing down progress or delaying decision-making. Women commonly agree that they do ask more questions than men, but that their questions are intended to create a collaborative environment, stimulate an exchange of ideas, discover what’s important, and arrive at a best possible outcome. More
It's time for men and boys to start acknowledging the role male domination and socialization plays in all forms of violence against women and girls. The Centers for Disease Control states that men's violence against women is the leading cause of injury to women in this country. That would lead me to say that men's violence against women is at epidemic levels and needs to be addressed as such.  More
One of the most important skills we learn as girls is the ability to ask without knowing the outcome: to apply for an opportunity we might not get, to raise our hand even if we don’t know the right answer, to ask for what we want even if the answer will surely be no. Yet when it comes to friendship problems, too many of us don’t say what we need because we worry we’ll hear the word no. Fear of getting rejected, or the fact that “things will never change” are the most common explanations girls and women share about refusing to speak up. More
We have been dreaming about you for some time now. We are codreamers who have been wondering, "Who would accept our invitation to Become the Kind of Leaders the World Needs Now? Who would want to explore themselves along with us, and think together with us about how we might use our leadership for the collective good?" You are the leaders we have been imagining. Knowing that it is we, humans, who are the instruments of change—together in this Intensive we will work on the personhood of those instruments. More
Each year, from April through October, approximately 350 Seasonal Staff join Omega to be part of something larger than themselves, practice compassionate service within their work, and live in community. More
Omega Institute A New Kind of Strategy for Nonprofits by Carla Goldstein
Convene, Reflect & Take Time to Strategize
The top managers of the Legal Aid Society's Juvenile Rights Practice only get to meet once a month, if that. "We needed time away from our hectic court-based environment to think more clearly, without interruption, and in a supportive environment," says Ann Marie Scalia, attorney-in-charge of the Manhattan Juvenile Rights office. Theirs is not a unique story. More
