How we will work together
In the next phase of the project, we will channel resources to support collaboration and connection between sectors around three focus areas.
The approach to collaboration we will take is inspired by the ‘Constellations’ model. This approach taps into the power of networks and people working as peers.
A Constellation is made up of committed individuals and organisations working towards a common goal.
In 2021, Inclusive Aotearoa will set up three Constellations. To do this, we will:
- choose a goal for each Constellation;
- find out who’s interested;
- tell them what’s involved;
- bring them together; and
- support groups and communities with different resources to fully participate.
The team at Inclusive Aotearoa will do the work of bringing people together, supporting conversations, and building relationships.
Once each Constellation comes together, they will:
- choose how and what they contribute;
- share what they’re doing already;
- learn from each other;
- find the best ways forwards; and
- work together by sharing resources and supporting each other.
We’re taking this approach because we believe everyone affected by a decision should be able to have meaningful input. We trust people and communities know what they need. We also believe there is a lot of great work happening already, and we want to make sure we grow and support that.
We’ll be posting more information about the Constellations and how this work unfolds. Watch this space!
In line with our values and guiding principles, we will use decision-making processes that are open and transparent. This will ensure equity through the sharing of power and resources.
We believe in finding out how we are doing, so we can do it better and share what we learn. We will work with the Constellations to monitor progress so that we can learn and grow.
