Online Training: Running an Inclusive Online Meeting

Event Details

September 30 - October 19, 2020

Blandin Leadership Program (BLP) alumni are aware of the challenges social distancing presents for bringing people together to sustain healthy community. These uncertain times have moved us out of shared spaces and into an online environment that is new and different. This change brings new opportunities and challenges for running meetings, especially when we consider the importance of bringing voices from all dimensions of community to the digital table.

Join us for a new online training opportunity that will provide you with the tools and process to execute a successful inclusive online meeting!

We will offer three opportunities for you to participate in this one-time session. The options are:

  • September 30th, 2020 from 10-11am (session full)
  • October 8th, 2020 from 9:30-10:30am (limited availability)
  • October 19th, 2020 from 6-7pm (limited availability)

You can register for this alumni learning opportunity by visiting the link we shared in our email invitation.

If you are having trouble with the link, or didn’t receive an email, please contact Senja Morque at or (218) 327-8732 to have us send a new invitation.


The session is designed to increase alumni capacity to run an inclusive online meeting for the sake of building and sustaining healthy community. We will share knowledge and skills that will:

  • Help you design and implement a strategy for hosting an online inclusive meeting.
  • Deliver meetings in an online space that are intentionally inclusive and engaging for all participants.

The training will be led by Becky Adams and Jaci David, who have worked with groups across the state on behalf of the Foundation’s Leadership and Public Policy and Engagement teams. We have limited participation to 30 participants in an effort to ensure an engaging learning environment.


The one hour session will take place over Zoom. Once alumni have registered for the training session, we will invite all participants to join an online work space specifically designed for the training. This space will give participants a chance to interact before they meet, review materials for the training and ask any questions they have about getting comfortable with Zoom.


We ask that all alumni who participate engage in the online work space, set aside time to review the workbook before the session and commit to one learning goal that they will practice after the session. The training will provide time for large and small group conversation, so technology with audio and video capability is needed for full participation.
