Working Group Facilitation

    • GlobalPDX gathers similarly minded people together by publicizing Working Groups across our channels
    • We share your successes and Group-developed thought leadership with the GlobalPDX Community
    • We host your group's resources on the GlobalPDX website (publicly or privately)
    • GlobalPDX is available for note taking, or to assist with facilitation of meetings upon request
    • We coordinate with each Working Group’s point-person to ensure that meetings continue at scheduled intervals

The Working Group Recipe for Success

    • Group Members collaborate on agreeing to the date and time of their meetings
    • Members decide the location of their own meetings
    • Each Group will select a “point person” who will be the main contact with GlobalPDX
    • To ensure a sense of inclusion and understanding within the Group, members decide on ground rules such as:
      • Are the meetings confidential, or open for outside discussion?
      • What Rules of Trust will enhance your group?
      • How can new folks join, and what is our ideal Group size?
