Highlighted Activity: Mapping the Sectors of Involvement
Community work is strengthened when we involve a rich mix of people and organizations in our efforts. However, in recruiting partners for community work, we too often look only to the usual suspects– companies, corporations, and formal volunteer organizations. These are strong partners to enlist, but we should also consider the many informal sectors and networks that are also a part of our communities – recreational sports leagues, parent networks, high school clubs, even social media networks like those on Facebook. This activity encourages you to include all sectors of your community in your work, not just the most obvious.
Broadening your conception of your community is an important first step in crossing boundaries with your work, an integral part of collective leadership. This activity, part of our Collective Leadership Works toolkit, facilitates the preliminary boundary crossing that will be a foundation of continued collective leadership work. You’ll create a visual – a map – to guide you in the process.
There are so many different ways to cross boundaries in communities. What does your map look like?
