Intro to Democratic Decision-Making Recording & Training Resources
Join our Program Manager, Mike Strode, for an introductory training on the values, practices, and processes for democratic decision-making which allow us to share power, autonomy, and accountability when collaborating within a group.
Unpacking democratic decision-making through Solidarity School is also part of the way OCF hopes to support public learning throughout the Open Collective ecosystem as we move towards a platform owned and governed by users and stakeholders through an Exit To Community.
Open Collective Foundation is committed to supporting its hosted collectives through Solidarity School with a range of democratic practices that can help them to expand their impact and deepen some of the values offered within our transparent budgeting infrastructure. Democratic decision-making is a cornerstone of cultivating strong collaborative infrastructure within our collectives and expanding participatory democracy by practicing it within our organizational relationships.
During this training, participants will:
- Understand a basic definition of both general and democratic decision-making
- Learn how democratic decision-making supports deeper group collaboration and cohesion
- Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of different forms of democratic decision-making including consensus and consent
- Share strategies for implementing democratic decision-making in their collectives or organizations
