Managing to Change the World
We’re happy to announce that The Network is partnering with The Management Center to provide practical management skills training designed for social justice leaders.  

This training is intended for supervisors and managers who want to learn or refine their knowledge in effective delegation practices, align team roles and goals, manage feedback, and advance workplace equity and inclusion practices.

On May 8 & 9 (10:00am-4:00pm), The Management Center will lead a two-part online Managing to Change the World training. We have space for 40 people, and we’d like to invite you and your colleagues to apply!  Due to space limitations, we can’t guarantee that everyone who applies will be accepted, but we’ll do our best. We ask that only 1-2 staff from each member agency registers at this time. (If you attended this training in November 2022, please do not register for this one. It will cover the same topics.)
This training will teach a system of best practices based on those we’ve seen differentiate high-performing, equitable organizations— from aligning on clear, inclusive expectations on projects and broad responsibilities to effectively seeking and sharing feedback across lines of power, developing a strong team and making management choices that advance equity and inclusion. The overall aim is to provide knowledge and tools to help organizations turn good intentions into outstanding and lasting results—through impactful, equitable and sustainable management.   
The training will consist of group activities, role-plays, PowerPoint presentation, individual and small group work, and group discussion. Participants will have time to apply, practice and translate the tools to their specific work contexts, and get input on core challenges from the trainer and their peers. 
You should apply if: 
  • You directly supervise staff, interns or consultants in some capacity, or 
  • You consistently manage others on significant projects or campaigns (even if you’re not directly supervising) 
  • You’re eager to learn new tools, frameworks, and practices to support your management 
  • You’re open to thinking critically and newly about your individual and organizational practices on managing with an equity and inclusion lens.
