Sharing power and participatory decision making



  • Accountability to SHIFT stakeholder groups: Have major decisions about the resources SHIFT has access to be informed by the diversity of perspectives that make up the SHIFT community

  • Stewardship informed by a diversity of perspectives: Have the mission, vision and values of SHIFT be collectively held by a diverse group to reduce structural blind spots in how we understand our work and choose to move forward to actualise our vision

  • Shared power as a tool for community engagement: Use the invitation to be meaningfully involved in decision-making as an engagement tool to build a community of people who feel engaged in and committed to realising SHIFT’s mission and vision.

  • SHIFT as a “socially transformative initiative” itself: Experiment with and contribute to collective learning about how different decision-making systems and shared power structures can contribute to systemic social change.
