power in the system

we've teamed up with lina patel from revma consulting once again to learn how to see and work with power in the system.  

if you've previously taken a look at this offer, a key change to highlight is a reduction in prices across the board.

when we engage with systems, we engage with power. yet, our awareness of power is another question entirely. much like a systems practice, we also need to practice seeing and engaging with power in order to become more power literate.

in this learning series we invite you to build your confidence to see, understand and work with power dynamics. both in your own role in the system, and the teams and projects you engage with.

we're especially keen on people enrolling in groups with others they work with - people from the same team, same project, or potential collaborators.

the focus of this learning series is to:

  • introduce concepts and framings on personal power, and relational power considerations for engagement activities
  • provide you with a space for to reflect, share and listen with others in small groups on your personal power and how power shows up in your systems of work
  • provide opportunities for you to apply tools and practices to increase your power literacy

you are invited to bring a ‚Äėcase study‚Äô to work on to help ground and make tangible the concepts we will be working with. this could be a group, project, or organisation you have worked with in the past, or are working with in the present.

this learning activity will be valuable to you if you want to:

  • build your capability to see and understand power both for yourself, and the work you engage with
  • gain confidence with tools and practices to explore and navigate power dynamics
  • reflect and examine your own experiences with power in the system

what this learning series will NOT do:
this learning activity will not be addressing or presenting on work from the fields of anti-racism, decolonising systems practice or gender equity. whilst we recognize these topics to be deeply embedded in aspects of power we feel it is prudent to acknowledge the boundaries of our own expertise and capacity and we will not be covering these important, yet out-of-scope topics.

since we last offered this course in 2023 we've considered the wider context and what’s going on in the world around us. given the current economic conditions and people's employment is less stable than in the past, we’ve decided to reduce prices across the board to make it easier for others to participate.

we still want people to be working with power well and hope these revised prices make the course accessible to a wider range of people. we continue our promise to create a learning space with the same amount of care and attention.

  • $450 if you're self-employed or paying for yourself (previously $990)
  • $600 if your organisation is paying for you (previously $1,100)
  • $1,500 for a group of 3 (new option)

we have created a new option for up to 3 people to join together, to encourage folks who collaborate or work in the same team to build their power literacy together.

what folks have said about the course

'i really appreciated the space you both created for the group. Aunty Di's Welcome was incredible and i found the resources you sent out very helpful too. i took away some lasting key messages from the sessions. thank you both for a deep learning opportunity that i hope will continue to inform my practice.'

'the amount of warmth and care was disarming (in a wonderful way). it made me realise that it is possible to offer a shared online workshop space that feels like an embrace. the way you passed the baton to each other was also done with such confidence - the space was held beautifully. thank you.'

'love the safety of the space you held and the invitation to look at power on a personal level not just as something 'out there' to be managed.'

we recognise and pay respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, their ancestors, the elders past, present and future from the different First Nations across this country. we acknowledge the importance of connection to land, culture, spirituality, ancestry, family and community for the wellbeing of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families.
