Stuck and numb
Chidinma Offomah
39:07
Ooof - “stuck” and “numb”. A general sense of apathy at this point.
Diana Colavita
39:08
Stuckness/numbness is very much my default state now
Alicia Avalos
39:09
I've seen this with organizations feeling they have to take everything on especially now.
Michelle Campbell-Mateo
39:13
all of it, overwhelm, makes me stuck

Internalized colonialistic expectation
Shirley Fessler

Knowing the most vulnerable are even more vulnerable during times like this.
Chidinma Offomah
41:01
Yes - the productivity thing is going to bury us, if we’re not careful. And it’s coming from all sides - capitalism is really driving us to be uber productive when that’s just not the reality we’re living in
Amariee Collins
41:15
understanding when to take breaks, when ppl cane self regulate

martine wilson
47:17
I like the definitions
rasha abdulhadi
47:30
Realizing I am trying to play almost all these roles almost all the time and feeling guilty when I can't. Whew, how unrealistic!
heena sharma
47:47
relatable, rasha!
Mustika Indah Khairina
47:59
Hello everyone, I'm from outside the US (Indonesia), wondering if I can virtually link up to any of the group above? :)
Tuhina Rasche
49:19
I also realize it depends on the ecosystem. Different ecosystems require different roles from me.
Kris Bein
49:23
My team talked about these roles recently, on a really microcosmic level--how it applies to our project. It's interesting to also think of them on the macro level.
Gina Acebo
49:43
Like to hear more how roles break down for race— expected labor from Black women, women of color, etc.?
Kim T
50:13
Yes to Gina's point!
heena sharma
50:49
yes! and roles we play as responses to trauma
Michelle Campbell-Mateo
50:55
Yes, Gina’s point!
Alicia Avalos
51:00
Indeed
BD DeCarlo
51:37
I am LOVING this presentation!!!
Felicia Gustin
51:41
That would be a great question for the Q & A - drop it in there so she can answer.
Alicia Avalos
51:56
So true
BD DeCarlo
52:20
I didn’t realize this is exactly what I needed to hear, view, and learn today!! Thank you, Deepa!
Alicia Avalos
52:35
Sometimes you get stuck in roles that are most comfortable for you
Alicia Avalos
52:40
But may not allow you to grow
Alicia Avalos
53:04
Also can be roles that you have had growing up as well
Alicia Avalos
53:11
You may gravitate towards those roles
BD DeCarlo
53:24
@Alicia: yes, and people can “keep” us in certain roles, too, to their benefit.
Shivani Parikh
53:26
Agreed - I’ve been put in a healer role and feel very conflicted about it because it put me in morally gray areas that I wasn’t expected for
Shivani Parikh
53:44
emotional labor for men of color ^
Alicia Avalos
54:00
@BD DeCarlo Exactly
Amaha Sellassie
54:03
YES!!! I think this connects with asset based community development to use these roles as colums or groups to gather those in the community who operate in these roles and core competencies!
martine wilson
55:37
Healer, first responder
martine wilson
56:08
homebirth first responder and healer
nicci port
56:47
Disruptor, which is interesting because now, we're so focused on moving forward together. Not that disruption is ever really valued in a supremacist system
Amariee Collins
57:06
I cant remember all the roles names
Dafne Powell
57:12
Can we have the map in the screen, please?
Tuhina Rasche
57:24
For the institutional church, being a disruptor has been calling out injustices; in this time of crisis, the institution claims that it wants to be about disruption, but doesn’t know how to engage (or it simply doesn’t want to and feigns not knowing as an excuse).
Kaleena Kovach
57:42
The map and the definitions were also emailed out to us yesterday!
Chidinma Offomah
57:55
Map is also here - https://buildingmovement.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Role-In-An-Ecosystem.pdf
Chrys Ballerano
58:15
Weaver~ Guide & Visionary are the three prime roles I have in my org and I need my ecosystem to be more clear with expectations and timelines of what they are seeking from the folx I guide as well as specific goals they have in mind when they make a general request of us.
Mana Tahaie
58:31
Overall, the idea of an ecosystem itself is staying with me - it’s hard for me to do social change as a solo agent, especially if my sweet spot is a weaver – it requires having things to weave together, which can’t happen when you work alone.
Diana Colavita
58:51
healer and storyteller
Chrys Ballerano
58:53
Also as a healer in my personal and prof life this is the overarching role I feel called to be all the time
Anjali Misra
59:02
As a storyteller, I'm finding myself serving as a voluntary microphone for people in other roles within my social change ecosystem, who've asked me to help them frame and amplify our shared goals.
Paul Janampa
59:08
caregiver and storyteller
martine wilson
59:09
I out the definitions off the email. thanks
Amaha Sellassie
59:45
By grace I show up as a weaver, visionary, healer and guide primarily
Kaleena Kovach
59:46
Could we send the reflection questions in the chat?
Courtney Clark
01:00:04
Working as the Member Liaison at a nonprofit, I find myself floating between Builder, Caregiver, Storyteller, and experimenter. What is neat is my Director I feel balances against the steps im taking by being both a guide and healer so that I can navigating supporting folks on the frontlines providing support to survivors of sexual assault.
Carol Bradbury
01:00:06
storyteller, visionary, experimenter and some time disrupter.
Nora Smith
01:00:08
I feel like a Weaver and Guide my background is in law. But speaking of right role, I wonder if I wouldnt be better in a different role..
Irene Neal
01:00:12
As a nursing student, I feel as though the caregiver and healer roles resonate with me the most
Deepa Iyer
01:00:31
Reflection ?s: 1. what roles do I play now? 2. What roles do people play in ecosystem? 3. What story emerges?
Avery Meunier
01:00:38
As someone who often plays the role of healer and caregiver, I am realizing that I don't allow the space for other people to fill those roles for me.
Amariee Collins
01:00:49
weaver for others, frontline responders/caregiving in my day to day work, builders for the family, healer by nature, disrupter by choice
Robin Williams
01:00:49
Robin (they/them): I tend to fall pretty naturally into Caregiver and Healer. I can take on the roles of Disruptor and Builder, but it doesn't come naturally to me.
Mike Strode
01:00:52
Weaver. Experimenter. Storyteller. Guide. My current work requires me to think deeply about the possibilities (or limits) of collaboration and how people self organize into dynamic, functional teams. I am not in a place to lead those teams, but make connections and tell stories about the work happening helps to build cohesion. This work is largely built on experimental facilitation where I help groups unpack their collective thinking. Sometimes that forces me to limit my ambitions because a container only offers a limited amount of time to get through BIG CHANGE.
Jennifer Eggertsen
01:00:54
I think I see myself sort of dabbling in many of these, but not really putting in the effort to hone & improve my skills so that I can become effective. I most identify myself as a disrupter, caregiver, weaver, and visionary
Teresita Hurtado Ramos
01:00:57
As a SJW I'm definitely still a disrupter and storyteller but I've noticed that my spouse has been playing the Healer role more so for me than ever. He's Empath and is very sensitive to folks' energy so this has been hard on him HOWEVER I have emotionally "barfed" on him a few times being overwhelmed playing all these full time roles such as working, while parenting and teaching my 5 year old that's on the spectrum of Autism. I'm grateful for him!
Laurin Mayeno
01:01:04
Roles: caregiving, healing, guide, builder. biggest insight is that what I’m doing now is enough. And, I might feel inspired to support the nonprofit orgs I work with more as a guide.
Courtney Clark
01:01:13
fatigue is real haha
Felicia Gustin
01:01:15
I think that being in a small non-profit I get pulled into all but I feel most comfortable with being a builder.
Robin Williams
01:01:24
Amber (she/her): I'm a disruptor, mainly, but I also perform caregiver and visionary pretty well. Frontline responder, when necessary.
martine wilson
01:01:37
I dont see the second list of roles on the email
Alicia Avalos
01:01:47
And this feeling of guilt for taking care of yourself or taking time for yourself
Alicia Avalos
01:01:51
So deeply rooted
Morgan Moore
01:01:55
This is a great self-reflection tool and will be really useful as a facilitator, volunteer facilitator coordinator and trainer.
rasha abdulhadi
01:01:59
Realizing that I'm trying to fill every role,and that there are some roles that are more Natural/Powerful for me to play, some that I feel Pressured/Have to do because no one else is, and others that are Sacrificed/Hard to play because of other demands.
Amy Sedovic
01:02:05
Looking at the roles was an affirmation that I actually am contributing more than I think I am. And I want to do / learn more. Thanks! Weaver, caregiver, story teller, guide.
BD DeCarlo
01:02:19
And how to determine what is ‘a lot’ and ‘too much’ and ‘just right’ can be a challenge!
Lisa Rosenthal
01:02:19
Insecurity/lack of confidence in taking on new roles
Amariee Collins
01:02:21
@martine I got the email on April 23rd
Ipsita Chatterjea
01:02:51
I manage a bunch researchers while conducting my own, all of us disrupting a status quo adjacent to our day jobs anchored in the status quo. Disruptor is a really weird contested role, a label used to interfere with change in process/ discredit.
Irene Neal
01:03:20
@Lisa Rosenthal- I relate to those feelings a lot!
Megan Todd
01:04:13
Weaver/Builder and Caregiver/Healer
Amy Tobin
01:04:23
There is a discomfort in getting used to new roles - after once being visionary/ frontline/ builder … is it “enough” to be storyteller/ guide/ caregiver
Laurin Mayeno
01:04:59
releasing pressure on myself to be a visionary…looking to others for vision.
Susan Burgess-Lent
01:05:27
How can we connect with participants after the webinar?
Anissa Juarez
01:05:36
yes let's stay connected
Amaha Sellassie
01:05:49
yes would love to stay connected!
Irene Neal
01:06:09
Agreed! I would love to stay connected as well!
Anjali Misra
01:06:14
hey all! a few folks offered their contact info above in the chat to stay connected regionally
Amaha Sellassie
01:06:28
i think there is way to connect all our local ecosytems to develop a shared story as well
SpeakOut
