STARTING STRONG COALITIONS
October 18th, 1pm - 4pm EST/ 10am - 1pm PT
If believing strength in numbers is how we win long-term change, then coalitions are a natural step that many organizations take. But what makes a coalition able to sustain inevitable conflict? Under what conditions should coalitions be started or ended? How can coalitions begin with clarity and intentionality?
This workshop covers the fundamentals of creating a strong coalition. There are steps you can take to develop clear expectations, community agreements, and conflict resolution practices that will keep your coalition strong for the long-haul. This workshop will offer concrete steps you can take and tools you can use for starting coalitions.
This is an interactive online workshop. Be prepared to practice and receive feedback. Having a computer with strong internet connection and the ability to connect to video will ensure the best experience.
By the end of this workshop you will have:
Explored challenges we face working in coalition
Identified best practices for developing and maintaining a coalition
Developed a set of criteria for coalition development that can be used in your local work
