Picking an event and program portfolio
Spend some time picking a good balance of programs and events. Different factors to consider include:
- Target audience – Antagonists? Cautiously receptive? Committed advocate?
- Depth – One-on-one conversation? Speaker in a large auditorium?
- Frequency – Weekly email? Monthly commitment reminder? Monthly lunch? Speaker annually?
- Time and Resources required to produce – Sign folks up for the mbaallies newsletter? Plan and coordinate the #metoo experience share
- Conceptual understanding vs personal investment vs practice time – Allyship guide? Fishbowl conversation? Scenario and role play?
