GlobalPDX | Working Groups

GlobalPDX Working Groups are customizable collectives within our broader community. GlobalPDX Members can create a Working Group around a topic, to confront a challenge, or based on solidarity because of a position or role. 

 

GlobalPDX facilitates and supports Working Groups in the following ways:

    • We gather and connect similarly minded people together by publicizing Working Groups which are seeking more members on our website, newsletter, and social media
    • Sharing the successes of each Working Group, and publicizing any content that the group would like to promote within the GlobalPDX Community
    • GlobalPDX hosts all Working Group resources on website, which can be made public to all members, or kept private for only Working Group members
    • GlobalPDX is available for note taking or assisting with facilitation of meetings upon request
    • We coordinate with each Working Group’s point-person to ensure that meetings continue at scheduled intervals

 

As a collective, Working Group also take on certain responsibilities to ensure the progress and success of their meetings:

    • Working Groups are in charge of organizing the date and time of their meetings
    • Members will decide and reserve the location of their 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 will decide on ground rules to guide meetings. For example:
      • Are the meetings confidential, or open for outside discussion
      • Timeliness guidelines
      • Are open laptops or phones acceptable, or discouraged?
    • Promote discussions on the type of participants who should be invited, and how many members should make up the group
