What: Overcoming Organizational Resistance to Change - for Online Organizers

When: Wednesday, August 11,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Merc Bar
151 Mercer St
New York, NY 10012
(212)[masked]

Many organizations are led by old school leaders unfamiliar with new media and online organizing. But that doesn't stop them from asserting authority over staff with more expertise! The result is ongoing tension, where the organization fails to develop it's online muscles while staff (often newer and younger) languish, waiting for a chance to show what they can do.

Online tools are destabilizing factors for many organizations - and bosses. Movement techies with online skills are caught in the crossfire. Elana Levin and Charles Lenchner will be leading the same training offered at the recent Netroots Nation conference in Las Vegas. Attend this Organizing 2.0 event August 11, and you'll get:


  • Language and resources for understanding workplace conflicts around online tools
  • Insights into workplace culture at nonprofits, political and labor organizations
  • Information about the role consultants can play in organizational change
  • Strategies for staff without power to create change and manage up


Overcoming Organizational Resistance to Change is cosponsored by Organizing 2.0 and Grassroots.org.
