Facilitating Collective Power


We will be offering this workshop twice in May to accommodate a diversity of time zones:

We highly recommend that you participate in Designing Sessions That Harness Collective Power (formerly The Session Design Lab) before Facilitating Collective Power.

This three-hour online workshop is for people who facilitate charities, advocates, activists, and other movement-builders. By the end of the workshop, you will have greater expertise in developing community-centric strategies to build long-term movements that drive real change.

We will begin the session by examining who has power in connection to the change we are trying to make. We will then explore how to identify, practice and support “facilitative leadership”. We will also look at power analysis exercises that can help communities create effective tactics. We finish the session by determining facilitation best practices that help us ‘walk the walk’.

Our communities of change need people in it who know how to harness our collective power — and this workshop is such a great step in beginning that journey.

Facilitating Collective Power Participant

Participants can also access and contribute to The Collective Power Playbook, a work in progress.

This session is led by Dirk Slater, who builds upon a quarter of a century of experience facilitating social justice movement building with activists and advocates in over thirty countries.

You can apply for a scholarship for Facilitating Collective Power.
