Leading a Workshop on Coalition Building Across Organizations for the Women’s Center for Creative Work on May 9

I’ve been invited back to the Women’s Center for Creative Work (WCCW) to lead a workshop for their Coalition themed Spring 2017 program series. Called “Creating Successful Coalitions Across Organizations,” here is a workshop description: Coalitions across organizations can be rewarding and effective for enacting large scale, long term societal change — when they work. But bringing multiple organizations together to take action is a challenge. In this workshop, Nonprofit and Government Advisor Rosalind Helfand will discuss several models for cross-organization coalitions from those that flourish in highly or softly structured environments to the holy grail of organizing — a long lived and effective coalition where all participants have input and decision making power. This workshop is designed to assist participants in strategies to form successful coalitions where all partners actively support a set of common goals. After the presentation, Rosalind will lead the group in an exercise and facilitated discussion where participants will have the opportunity to discuss their current or future endeavors and work through potential challenges.

Participants should bring:
* Notebooks
* Pens/pencils
* Ideas for their current or upcoming coalition building efforts
