Design Your Own Cohort

Create a space to collaborate and design your own private cohort for you and your community members and/or partner organizations.

Participating in rootid’s communications cohort has been a deeply connective and enlightening experience. I’ve appreciated being in community with other communications leaders where a diversity of wisdom is shared and resonant support offered. There hasn’t been a cohort meeting I’ve left without some new insight or tool gained that I could immediately integrate into my work at KTA. Grateful to rootid for convening and curating such a special space!

Our 2024 cohort participants will embark on a comprehensive exploration of communication techniques, leadership development, and brand strategy led by expert facilitators and co-designed by like-minded partners who are passionate about personal and professional growth. 

Together, we will curate a dynamic series of connections including:

  • monthly roundtables featuring learning activities and presentations on key topics and strategies 
  • monthly deep-dive workshops utilizing our innovative and effective solution room model where participants connect for thought partnership and relationship building activities
  • resource sharing and networking via our invitation-only community slack channel 
  • access to quarterly 1:1 coaching sessions with rootid professionals and consultants 

However, this journey is not just about acquiring knowledge; it’s about building meaningful connections as we will uplift and inspire each other, forming lifelong bonds that extend beyond the program.

As a first step to becoming a part of the cohort, please share a little about what you are looking to get out of this experience by completing this form.

Our Cohort kicks off February 2024, with our monthly roundtable on Wednesday, February 21 (10am-11:30am PST), followed by a 90-min solution room session on Thursday, February 22 (11am – 12:30pm PST) that will allow participants a chance to get to know each other, and review program fundamentals.


These sessions will be facilitated by rootid team members Marcus Cinque Harris (he/him), Val Neumark (she/they), Andrew Goldsworthy (he/him), Anjali Mehta (she/her), and Mabel Colón (she/ella) and will take place over Zoom.

Multiple people from a single organization will be considered as separate “seats”.
