Event description

Description

Attending, facilitating, and participating in meetings are a major part of movement building. When we make decisions together in meetings, developing a transparent, structured process that focuses on building a shared understanding and making sure everyone involved has a say can mean that whatever we come up with is more creative and more supported by the whole group. Join us as we spend time exploring effective group decision-making in social movement organizations. Together we'll discuss and share strategies for fostering good communication, embracing dissent in our groups, solving disagreements with creative thinking, and addressing informal group hierarchy through intentional, structured group process. This workshop will be especially relevant for groups who are used to using "informal" consensus (aka "basically consensus") as an approach to decision-making, and who tend to have meetings with 3-20 people.


Date: Thursday November 7
Time: 6:30-9:00PM

Location: TBA - location information will be given to registrants by email
Accessibility: This is a barrier free space

Kate Klein is a community-based facilitator and activist. Street theatre, popular education, and creative group process are some favourite tools in her toolkit. She organizes with the Mining Injustice Solidarity Network and works at George Brown College as a faculty member in the Transitions to Post-Secondary Education program. Kate has supported a number of groups in developing a decision-making process that works for them, and is personally committed to fighting the good fight against the "tyranny of structurelessness" wherever she goes.
