Systems convening workshop
September 7 - October 1
Systems convening workshop
Online, Sept 14 – Oct 9
This workshop is for people who are doing systems convening at any level of scale and whether or not you are recognized for doing it. In other words, you are bringing people together across traditional boundaries into new configurations that serve the learning capability of an entire landscape (or system) rather than developing a single practice.
It requires around 6 hours a week over four weeks. We will share what we are learning as we develop the systems convening handbook, learn from and with each other about overcoming the challenges, including demonstrating the value of what you are doing, preparing for the dark side of systems convening, and celebrating what we have all done.
Let us know if you are interested below, or just register if you are ready.

During the workshop, we explore themes emerging from our research into systems convening. We find out what resonates with you and your work and discuss how to take it forward in your context.
The aim is to share a language about the work of systems convening and to move forward with your own leadership in practical ways.
Week 1 – Mapping your landscape
Week 2 – Developing your convening call
Week 3 – Preparing for the work of systems convening
Week 4 – Taking up leadership
We hold two 2-hour synchronous sessions a week on Tuesdays (+1) and Fridays.
Exception: the first week, the sessions will be on Monday, September 14.
On both days there are two sessions to accommodate time zones:
- Session 1: midnight (PDT) | 02:00 (CDT) |

In addition, there are self-organized times for individual work and small group work.
