The GEiHP believes in the power of network. When two or more come together, we are stronger than when we are alone, and when we form partnerships and coalitions, we develop the powerful relationships that enable us to leverage what we have learned to do the work of making change. None of our work stands alone. We begin with learning.
All who complete our Gender Equity Advocates Workshop & Traning will be matched with peers who will serve as their partners for ongoing learning, and with coaches and mentors who will serve as champions for their work, and support them in the difficult endeavor of making change. These two different levels of relationship will enable our network to evolve and to shape a powerful web of learning and potential as time passes.
Peer partners will be matched from within our cohorts.
Coaches and mentors will be advisors from outside our network who are advocates and supporters of our work and offer their expertise to help us move the needle.
If you are interested in serving as a volunteer coach, please be in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHEN AND HOW?
We meet throughout in both synchronous and asynchronous gatherings, in pairs and in large and small groups. We will offer one on one paired peer partnership conversations in hevruta, small group conversations on specific issues, and larger group dialogues. We will also offer private, asynchronous spaces for questions, conversation and relationship building as time allows.
Learning together will help to thicken our discourse and enable us to strengthen our advocacy work: one of the ways we'll gather is in a virtual book club, by reading texts together that will challenge us and anchor us in research.
After our first year of network building, we will be proud to launch our cohort members into the fuller network we are building of full individual and organizational partners in this work. For more information about this work as it unfolds, please stay tuned. We look forward to evolving this work as the work itself evolves.
