Explore effective ways to build power and create change in our Orientation to Organizing, a 3-hour introductory session on the organizing and public narrative practice developed by Marshall Ganz at the Harvard Kennedy School and his associates, and one of our most popular sessions at LCN!
We’re thrilled to share that for the first time ever, we are holding the session at a time that is friendly for the Asia-Pacific region! In partnership with LCN Australia, we will be learning from a powerful campaign by Australian Education Union Victorian Branch to win better workload and pay for teachers and education support staff, and build campaign hubs’ capacity and leadership in the process.
Join us on March 2nd Thursday at 11am ICT/12pm AWDT/3pm AEDT to learn how we can build people power for change!
The presentation will be in English with live Indonesian interpretation.
Who is the session for?
This session is perfect for people who are looking for effective ways to create change in their community, and want to gain a basic understanding of what organizing is and how it looks in practice.
We also encourage you to invite other members on your team, organization, and community to join you in learning together – having a shared language of organizing and leadership is powerful when you are working together!
People who are familiar with our organizing and narrative pedagogy, but are looking for a refresher on the basics of the framework through a real campaign example, will also find this useful.
What will I gain in the session?
Our approach to change is an adaptive community organizing and public narrative practice that equips people with the leadership skills and capacity to respond with the agency to the challenges of today. It is born out of decades of organizing experience, complemented by insights of social science, and tested through training campaigns on the ground.
In this session you will gain:
- An introductory overview and basic understanding of community organizing using a real campaign example
- The opportunity to learn and connect with other organizers and leaders from around the world;
- An introduction to the Leading Change Network and our programs
We will take you through the five leadership practices of our community organizing framework – public narrative, relationship building, structuring a team, strategizing, and moving people to action – that are core to turning the resources of our communities into the power they need to achieve the change they want.
Who will be leading the session?
This session will be led and facilitated by Eleisha Mullane, Anita Tang, Emma Lowe, Alex Ryan, Stephen Donnelly from the the LCN Australia team, and Sachiko Osawa from the Leading Change Network LCN.
