Gathering Details

Join a group of nonprofit leaders & staff to explore Organizing the Chaos: How Logic Models Can Help Communicate ‘What You Do’ during a 90-min Virtual Workshop. Are you struggling to clarify your message because you are doing so many things that people’s eyes glaze over when you begin to explain what your organization does? If you are looking to get more organized and be able to speak more clearly and simply about what you do—then this is the training for you.

We strive to co-create spaces of meaningful connection and belonging (these workshops are not webinars). We encourage and model frequent screen and body breaks. We believe collective learning leads to the most innovative and effective outcomes.

This roundtable will be co-facilitated by Val Neumark (she/they) & Andrew Goldsworthy (he/him), communications strategists, educators, facilitators and coaches focused on using communications, design-thinking and technology as vehicles to advance equity.

This collaboration room-style agenda invites attendees to:

  • Discuss challenges they are currently facing in explaining the complexity of their work in ways that feels clear, meaningful and values-centered.
  • Ideate with peers, consultants and funders from the nonprofit sector about potential solutions.
  • Gain strategies and tools to organize your work into distinct pillars/buckets.
  • More clearly share your mission, vision, impact and outcomes with others.

After the collaboration room, walk through logic model framework that rootid uses with nonprofit clients.

The virtual session will take place over Zoom.

We provide a link to our resource folder and slide deck draft 24 hours before the session as well as enable live transcription and closed caption during the live Zoom session. Our sessions are recorded (absent any technical difficulties) and can be accessed on our website a few days after the event.

Seats are limited and reserved on a first-come first-served basis.

I’ve loved the sessions I’ve attended, especially when there are very practical steps to take or templates to use. I also appreciate the inclusiveness of all the sessions and how you always create opportunities to interact in small groups. No matter what the topic is, getting into these groups makes me realize that I’m not alone in this. Others struggle with some of the same challenges that I do, and that’s always comforting. So A+ for community building.
