Framing Your Ask
The workshop and community of practice can be viewed similarly to attending a conference or professional development workshop, but with the added bonus of year-round support for working through issues experienced on the job.
Making the Ask
Use an email template like the following to start a conversation with HR, your manager, or a skip-level
I am interested in pursuing this professional development opportunity that I think is very relevant to the work I am doing to help scale our social good and/or sustainability initiatives at our company.
In place of attending a conference on this topic, I’d like to join this MovingWorlds CSR "Scale Your Impact" Workshop which serves as a hybrid conference (learn best practices and emerging trends) with a professional development opportunity (access to ongoing coaching and peer support). The explicit focus is to learn frameworks to better engage executives, management, and employees in scaling our programs - and then work through them alongside peers,
Part of the benefits of participating include accessing benchmarking data on how prepared our company is to scale-up our programs compared to other companies – which I will be able to share back with our team after.
Please find more details about the program here, which includes a cost of participation. The budget covers not only the live workshop (virtual on account of COVID), and also 12-month of virtual programming after.
Thank you for considering this ask!
