Building the Skeleton

December 3, 2018 – February 28, 2019

How might we...

  • B How might we shift governing power more towards justice?
    • How can we have more of our members represented on our own governing board?
      • How do we elect our own board members?
      • How might I start to build the policy for democracy within Washington CAN?
        • How Might We question] prepare for the shift of board members?
      • How might we prepare for the shift of board members?

Hypothesis

If I have 4 conversations, then it will feel like I’m starting the job I was meant to do at this organization.

GOAL | MEASURE

Success- shape the skeleton of democracy within WashingtonCAN.

  • Have 4 convos
  • Spend 4 hours constructing the skeleton of democracy for WashingtonCAN
  • If successful, it will feel like I’m starting the job I was meant to do at this organization. Job is to create a pathway for next POC or marginalized person to not have to elbow, 4-5yr journey.

Learnings

  • By laws
  • Recruitment issues
  • Mitigating power dynamics
  • Structure

Two big lessons learned:

  • Slowing down process and being the bridge
  • Needing to bring along the board with the transition – also something about a name, shape, container for transition so that others can hold it with you.
  • Slow down the process is the role I am supposed to play at this org for, this includes work with the board. Will be able to bridge old identity and what we will become as an organization. 

Decisions

Suggestion: Mary think about next step in experiment. Could be about ally person or naming this process and identifying what’s the container.

I will find the right messenger for the board. Take time to figure out who might be the right messenger
