The Systems Sisterhood
The Systems Sisterhood
The Systems Sisterhood is a place to find camaraderie and support for women working in systems change who are in life transitions.
What is the value?
Share your unique challenges
With a group who understand what you're talking about.
You will receive practical advice, ideas and feedback on a specific challenge you are facing and learn from challenges and answers of others.
Learn new tools and techniques
For systems change, which can clarify and enrich your project; learn new tools, frameworks & techniques to help you succeed.
Build an international network of new friends
With like-minded peers and leave with a diverse network of systems change practitioners that will last long after the program has ended. Taking part will feel inspiring, supportive and fun.
What’s the deal?
Transitions might include leaving a big project you've been leading, becoming a leader, taking time out to look after children, or relatives, going through change at home or simply feeling called to dig deeper into your sense of purpose.
We will explore challenges that come up in systems change work in interesting ways for women, like dealing with power and alternative leadership styles.
We will share new frames, dig into big questions about life priorities and reflect on transitions, sharing practices to support embracing the unknown and the emergence of something new.
This will be a multi-generational program that allows for mentoring from those at different stages of life. You will leave with an international network of amazing women working in your field to lean on for whatever comes next.
Who is this for?
The Sisterhood is open to women of all ages and who are in transition and who have been, or are beginning to work in, systems change. We are looking for an international, multi-generational cohort and particularly welcome applicants who have been disadvantaged by our current systems.
What will it involve?
Commitment to a total of 7 peer sessions and individual reflective practice
Connection to responsive and personalized coaching
We will convene peer learning circles virtually via Zoom
The cohort will begin in June 2018 through to December 2018
Each peer session session will be 1.5 hours long
What will happen on the calls?
Each session will involve small group gatherings of up to 6 people with a different person sharing a challenge each month, followed by peer-to-peer coaching.
We will bring in external speakers and experts who have helped us personally through our own transitions, to support you in spirit, mind and body. We will also build in time for new topics to emerge and be explored together as they arise. The groups will be co-facilitated by Tatiana and Rachel.
Proposed dates of calls
Final details will be set to meet the needs of our participants, where possible.
