Member Conversation for Shared Leadership

By CultureWorks Greater Philadelphia (other events)

2 Dates Through Jun 15, 2022

As you know, CultureWorks has been going through a period of transition.  We are ready to figure out what kind of leadership we need moving forward, and we need member input!

There are many questions about what it means for CWGP to move from a founder culture, structure and Board to a new, different, reality that responds to this moment.  Shared leadership is one aspect.

We are having a series of facilitated conversations to determine what shared leadership could mean for CultureWorks, and the structure and supports that will need to be in place to maximize the chance of success.

There will be two zoom sessions.  Please RSVP to one that works best for you.

Tuesday, June 14, 12-1:30PM

Wednesday, June 15, 6-7:30PM

During the facilitated conversation, we will explore:

  • How does CultureWorks help you thrive?
  • What is missing?
  • What is needed to bring back the magic?
  • What would you look for in a staff leader for Culture Works?
  • What leadership model do you think would work best?

CultureWorks has hired Sara Joffe (She/Her) of Dragonfly Partners to help us get to this next stage. Sara will facilitate these sessions.
