“Be The Bridge Mutual Aid Initiative”
WiLD Academy – Online Course May 4 – June 29
Organizing for this MomentAs we make sense of our lives during the challenges posed by this global pandemic, it’s natural to feel paralyzed by fear and isolation. Yet, within this time of great uncertainty—not only concerning public health, but also an upcoming election where Wisconsinites could decide the next President of the United States—there are opportunities to come together and inspire leadership. Since knocking on doors and holding public gatherings are not options right now, the WiLD Project is re-imagining a way forward. We are proud to announce the WiLD Academy, a new online opportunity for ongoing learning, developing ourselves as organizers, and building the foundation for effective campaigns that can rise to the challenges of the moment.
What You Will LearnThis 8-week online course on Leadership, Organizing, and Action, presented by the Wisconsin Leadership Development Project (WiLD Project), offers participants the opportunity to learn five basic leadership practices:
- How to articulate a story of why you were called to lead, a story of those whom you hope to mobilize, and a story of action: self, us, and now.
- How to build intentional relationships as the foundation of purposeful collective action.
- How to structure your team with shared purpose, ground rules, and roles for effective leadership.
- How to strategize turning your resources into the power to achieve clear goals.
- How to translate strategy into measurable, motivational, and effective action.
