Network Leadership Series

The Network Leadership Series is a cohort-style training to deepen your understanding and practice of network coordination. Participants will learn useful tools and frameworks and collectively explore ways to apply them in their home networks and organizations.

Co-facilitated by Converge practitioners, the series unfolds in weekly online gatherings over 2 months. Each session offers small group learning and builds depth across our core topics of network mindset, coordination, and engagement.
