Recognizing that organizations are at various stages of understanding and activation, the C2EC has created a two tiered membership structure to better address the needs of our members so we can meet them where they are. For leaders and organizations who are in the beginning stages of engaging with I.DE.A. We have the:

Apprentice (App) Cohort:

Building and filling your toolbox:

 

The primary focus of the Apprentice cohort is providing the basic building blocks of education through our Curriculum of Change, and supporting the cohort in the process of defining their organizational identity through the lens of  I.D.E.A. & CC, and that means to them.

The Corps de Ballet (CdB) Cohort:

Using the tools in your toolbox:

 

The primary focus of the Corps de Ballet will be on embodying the principles of I.D.E.A and cultural competence. It will also engage in the Curriculum of Change, however their work will be more tailored to support the work they have begun and address blind spots, barriers, or specific issues they have identified.

Coalition Bank Account (CBA). Membership includes an allotment of individual organizational consultation. Members are 15 CBA hours which can be used for: one on one coaching, leadership, management or departmental coaching, assessment analysis, support with program development, marketing strategies, partnership development etc. Members have an option to purchase more time should they require

Access to MoBBallet Network:

Members will have the opportunity to collaborate with MoBBallet to develop programming that increases equity with access to MoBBallet’s: Audition Program, Choreographer Cultivation Course, and MoBBallet Symposiums.

 

Assessment and Tools:

Each company will complete an Organizational Climate Assessment upon entering the coalition. This establishes the starting point for each company’s growth, and indicates needs and goals for the program. Members will be asked to share what they would like to accomplish within the year, and C²EC supports them in achieving these. Throughout the year, companies will also complete periodic, brief surveys administered by Coalition through C²EC database, which helps chart progress, identify obstacles, and promotes development along the way by helping tailor C2EC programming to company needs. Members will each receive an end of year “report card” based on each organization’s progress toward their self-determined goals.

Consultation and Training:

Members will have access to Founder Theresa Ruth Howard, and the C2EC Curriculum for Change Experts for organizational consultation using their CBA Hours. Meetings can be requested and scheduled through the coalition portal.

Cohort Meetings:

There will be two cohort meetings for each membership tier (Apprentice and CdB) each month, one for Administrative and another for Artistic. Topics will be based on the *Curriculum of Change. Members will engage with learning material within their Cohort Portal, and meetings will be used to debrief on the information. These sessions will be facilitated by a C2EC facilitator or Curriculum of Change subject matter expert.

Potluck Meetings:

Potluck meetings are member-organized and C2EC-facilitated meetings beyond cohort meetings and breakouts. Members may *pool their coalition bank hours to schedule a tailored mini-session with an expert, a small discussion between professionals at different companies, or a follow up from a larger meeting. (*three organizations can contribute 20 minutes of their CBA hours to create a session)

Breakouts:

C2EC will facilitate regular breakout meetings that are available to all members, the focus of which will be determined by members through post cohort polls. These may take the shape of conversations with an expert, guest lectures, or introduction of specific tools. While these meetings will be designed to target the needs of specific membership subgroups (development, marketing, school faculty), all members are welcome and encouraged to participate in break-outs.
