The purpose of Co-Creating Effective & Inclusive Organizations/Organizers is to increase inclusivity, justice & conscious
We envision communities where the
voices of all its members are included in shaping their personal, family and community life. Community members recognize and act on their power to influence and make change within these circles and are supported to do so.
Our core intention is to support community-serving organizations and organizers to fully embody inclusivity, justice and conscious co-creation, thereby inspiring, encouraging and expanding the wider practice of these values within the communities they serve.
CEIO GUIDING VALUES
CEIO partners with community-serving organizationsthat seek to be more just, inclusive and consciously co-creative. We support partners in this endeavor, therefore increasing their overall mission effectiveness.
The CEIO Capacity Building & Training Partners (CBTP) work closely with partner organizations. Skilled in understanding transformational processes, CEIO-CBTP provide guidance, training and skill in holding the space for deep change work. The objective for these working relationships is to co-define and implement a plan for deep and lasting organizational transformation.
THE 2020 COHORT OF PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS ARE UNDER CONSIDERATION. WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING MULTI-YEAR INQUIRES.
Deeper Change Forums
Deeper Change Forums create spaces that invite fundamental transformation. A change that is so deep that a return to the previous conditions is utterly inconceivable. Courageous conversations - grounded in peace, justice, and love.
Our next Deeper Change Forum is A Gift of Black Man Wisdom on February 25th. During this Forum we will sit in a circle together as black men grapple with the hows and whys. They will witness each other and offer what they have come to know. Others will hold space together as these black men share what they are beginning to understand as they move toward their own healing and support the healing within their families and larger community.
DEEPER CHANGE FORUMS ARE FREELY OFFERED & OPEN TO ALL. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
Seeding Conscious Co-creation
Through this new program CEIO is supporting Vision Holders of all kinds in forming and sustaining community of practice circles - groups that meet regularly toward a shared purpose or concern and whose purpose includes creating greater equity, justice, well-being, and liberation within the larger community.
With the launch of this new opportunity for community leadership, CEIO is using its power to deliberately cultivate a field where more seeds of change and liberation can be nurtured, watered, and supported so they can take root and flourish.
Learn more about the inaugural Vision Holders cohort and how to get involved in a community of practice circle.
Keeping Accountable to Liberation & Equity (K.A.L.E.)
K.A.L.E. is a response to the increased requests coming to CEIO from organizations who are recognizing their participation in systemic oppression and who want to do something to address it.
KALE is for Community-Serving Organizations (or their Departments), Community Networks and Coalitions who want to make internal changes in order to be just and equitable in how they operate. KALE Consultations are short term engagements ranging from 6-9 months.
