Compass Education recently launched regional Compass Engagement Groups to bring together any educator in a global region who is passionate or curious about how systems thinking can help create a more sustainable world through education.
These new groups were made possible through the work and dedication of our volunteer Working Group on Regional Reorganization. While the initial idea emerged at our strategic retreat in 2022, these people volunteered time, energy and expertise to make them happen!
We want to express our earnest appreciation for the work of Nicole Swedlow, Karen Virta, Mark Mains, Trisha Nikrandt and Gitanjali Paul. They accomplished many essential tasks, including:
- Clarifying the goals, scope, and possible indicators of success for the Compass Engagement Groups
- Developing an implementation plan for creating regional groups, with the input of the Executive Committee and Admin Team.
- Envisioning what leadership might look like for the Compass Engagement Groups and recruiting our first cohort of Regional Leaders
- Developing resources and running training to onboard Regional Leaders and support them in their new roles.
We want to celebrate them and their work for helping Compass Education continue to evolve to better serve and connect educators worldwide looking to make systems change and create a more sustainable world.
