In the thick of it — a programme from The Systems Sanctuary

In the thick of it

“My Peer Input session was a highlight – it came at a time when I was second-guessing my approach to, and gut feelings about, collaboration for systems change. The support, practical advice and reassurance provided by a group of informed and experienced peers was invaluable for setting my on a solid course towards playing an impactful role in leading a systems change initiative.”

Who is this for?

It is open to people who have been leading a systems change initiative for at least two years. We seeking a diverse, international cohort, who are working on different systems and challenges from public services, to poverty, to climate change, members of professions and beyond.

We especially welcome those who have been disadvantaged by our current systems and welcome applications from people all over the world. We will work out time zones as to fit our cohort.

What will it involve? 

  • Our programs are hosted virtually via Zoom
  • The second program will be run monthly from September- March 2018/2019
  • Each session is 1.5 hours long
  • Participants are required to commit to all 7 sessions in order to take part

What will happen on the calls?

Each session will involve small group gatherings of up to 6 people with a different person sharing a challenge each month, followed by peer-to-peer coaching.

Using the principles of Open Space, we will also build in time for new topics to emerge and be explored together as they arise. The groups will be facilitated by either Tatiana or Rachel.


There will be a slide scale for different types of organization.
