Teaching: Gather your group

How to Gather the People You Influence

As a community influencer, you’re connected to groups where you can share our material. The easiest way to provide
education is in meetings where people already gather.

STEP 1

IDENTIFY:
  • Brainstorm a list of opportunities where you could schedule a discussion about one of our topics.
    • Regularly scheduled organization trainings
    • Lunch and learns where a company/organization provides lunch and employees donate
      their time to be educated
    • Community meetings
    • Church groups

STEP 2

COLLABORATE:
  • Work with the people in your group/organization/network to determine how to incorporate our education into an already scheduled meeting or gathering.

STEP 3

INVITE:
  • Once a time and place has been set, invite as many as possible to attend.

STEP 4

FOLLOW THROUGH:
  • Ensure that the gathering is promoted.
