Success Snapshot: Virtual Convening Certification

THE CHALLENGE
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.

THE SOLUTION
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.

THE IMPACT
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.
