JOI Session | Oct. 30, 2009

At this session, Fellows workshopped “stories of self” that they had a week to prepare. Prior to the session, Fellows were asked to reflect on a story that would help its listener to understand why the Fellow was organizing now. At the session, each fellow was given 5 minutes to tell her story to the group, and then the group had a short period of time to respond each story with positive feedback, constructive criticism, and suggestions for improving the story. Through this process, individual Fellows were able to hone their own specific stories, and also work on the more broadly applicable skill of crafting and helping others to craft powerful organizing stories.
