Engagement Organizing is an approach that strives to marry organizing, technology, and a culture of developing leadership in others. It represents a shift away from expert-driven, direct mail groups toward a model that focuses on nimble, data-driven, learning organizations that place relationship building and mobilization of supporters at the heart of their work. The result can be build resilient, effective organizations that continue to advance their work in an ever-more competitive world.
Offered by Sustainability Network, the goal of this workshop will be to share the theory and practice of developing successful engagement organizations. Session Leader Lindsay Telfer will describe real world stories and techniques of others doing this kind of work, and also tap into lessons from participants in the room. Also included are important conversations around data, segmentation, team building, leadership development, and institutionalization of organizing.
