Event description

Description

Open Enspiral workshops give people context, tools and an experience in open participatory systems, based on our lived experience of Enspiral.

In the Oakland workshop, founder of Enspiral Joshua Vial and member and director Billy Matheson will open the lid on what happens in Enspiral. You'll discuss how this network of 15 startups and 250 entrepreneurs has developed over the last five years. Joshua and Billy will walk you through the practices and processes of how Enspiral makes agreements and decisions together in an open, participatory and collaborative way.

You will explore Enspiral's experiments around leadership, governance, and collaborative financing as well as the crucial cultural practices embedded in Enspiral that enable this kind of experimentation.

You will will walk away with skills that you can apply in your own organizations and contexts.

Participants will have the opportunity to work on their own organisational design questions with these two experienced designers and facilitators.


The workshop is being hosted by Edward West, an Enspiral Contributor based in Oakland, and the founder of Hylo and Impact Hub Oakland.



Enspiral is a global network of entrepreneurs and startups working on stuff that matters. Its ventures and freelancers contribute income back to the core foundation and all decisions are made in an open and participatory way. There are no bosses and people come before process. A cooperative in structure, Enspiral has quickly become one of the world's pioneers when it comes to finding new ways to organise work.
