Vibrant Phoenix Open Space and Convening Question

Convening Question: How do we attract talent, grow talent and retain talent to diversify and create a vibrant economy?

Opening and Discussion Topics: The first part of Open Space is dedicated to reviewing how the process works and inviting session topics from anyone who wishes to host a discussion in the breakout sessions.  Our facilitator will describe the principles of Open Space, which include taking responsibility for contributing and learning.  Don’t see something in the research that addresses your favorite topic?  Propose it for Open Space.

Session 1: During the first forty five minute breakout, groups will form according to the discussion topics which have been posted to address any aspect of the broad theme of “(convening question)?”.  Groups can be three people or 103 people.

Session 2: During the second forty five minute breakout, participants can continue discussions or join new topics, based on their own area of interest.  Remember, you choose the topics, and you choose which discussions to take part in.

Session 3: During the third forty five minute breakout, participants can continue discussions or join new topics, based on their own area of interest.  Remember, you choose the topics, and you choose which discussions to take part in.

Final Thoughts: All Open Space participants will reconvene together for a final few minutes to share discussion highlights and commit to next steps.  Summaries of the breakout sessions will be collected and shared with everyone electronically.
