Success Snapshot: Virtual Convening Certification
Melvin Consulting works primarily with indigenous activists and support groups across the country. With their community disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, and under-resourced when it comes to connectivity options, virtual convening felt like an almost insurmountable obstacle.
Eileen got exactly what she needed from Conveners.org’s Virtual Convening Certification. She gained a solid foundation on virtual design principles and available tools–and how to apply them effectively. More importantly, she found an ongoing community of peer support and resources.
Eileen launched several cohort-based virtual experiences within a month of completing the Virtual Convening Certification. She has had overwhelmingly positive feedback on her events and made concrete progress toward important impact objectives.
