Event description
A new course offering from Reos Partners which provides a deep dive into the challenges and practices of convening for systems change.

About this event

We are living in times of high complexity and facing challenges that are urgent, unprecedented, interdependent, and highly dynamic. In these circumstances, it is crucial for diverse stakeholders to come together across sectors, generations, disciplines, and perspectives to collaborate effectively for systemic change.

What does it take to convene and sustain such collaborations?

For over 20 years, the Reos Partners team has been working closely alongside convenors of collaborative and systemic multi-stakeholder processes while supporting these processes with design, facilitation, convenor coaching, learning and evaluation. We take a systemic, co-creative, and collaborative approach and consistently partner with convenors in ways that build their convening capacity.

Session Dates & Times:

  1. Monday, 28 June: 9:00-11:30 ET / 15:00-17:30 CET
  2. Wednesday, 30 June: 9:00-11:30 ET / 15:00-17:30 CET
  3. Friday, 2 July: 8:00-10:30 ET / 14:00-16:30 CET

During the 3 modules of 2,5 hours each, we will cover:

  • The meaning and ingredients of convening power and how to establish it
  • How to do multi-dimensional stakeholder mapping
  • How to sense the needs of a system and its stakeholders
  • When and how to move from behind-the-scenes “quiet” convening to explicit “full” convening
  • How to frame a process to align process, purpose, people and timing
  • How to extend effective invitations
  • How to evolve in the convening role over the course of a process

The course is an opportunity for participants to:

  • Build both practical knowledge and inner capabilities to be an effective convenor
  • Access practical convening tools and resources
  • Learn from real-life stories of convening successes and failures
  • Meet with leaders from other countries and contexts who are working to convene systems-change processes

Join us in June and July for our new course offering, which will provide a deep dive into the challenges and practices of convening for systems change!

If the price is impeding your participation or these course dates don’t work for you, please indicate your interest to Sydney Hayes ( Note that we will likely repeat this course for future cohorts.
