Professional co-development meeting groups
Are you keen to speak with other women farmers dealing with professional challenges similar to your own?
Some situations spur you in the direction of success. Some steer you into obstacles. And sometimes, you just don’t know where to start.
Sound familiar? If so, our professional co-development groups were designed just for you. Interested?
Dimension E capitalizes on collective intelligence to address real-life issues that arise in the course of business.
What is co-development?
« The professional co-development group is an approach to development for people who see value in learning from one another to improve their practices. »
Adrien Payette and Claude Champagne, Le groupe de codéveloppement professionnel, Presses de l’Université du Québec, 1997
Most importantly, it’s an opportunity for you to meet other women farmers, hone your entrepreneurship skills and explore a range of topics.
How do Dimension E co-development groups work?
Each group is made up of ten women at most. Members commit to three meetings of three hours each, spread out over a few months. Each group sets its own schedule.
Discussions are organized using a rigorous, structured, seven-step method for optimal member input. One by one, participants are given the chance to talk about professional issues and gather ideas from the group. to help them take action. Central to these discussions is a spirit of confidentiality, goodwill and giving.
To see co-development in action, you can attend an “introductory” meeting in November. The purpose of this virtual meeting is to introduce the concept to women, so they can see the incentives first-hand.
Co-development groups planned for 2022-2023
New co-development groups will gather in the summer, autumn, and winter. These groups target specifically English-speaking female producers.
The groups will be launched when the number of registrations is attained (8 producers per groups). To join our co-development groups, register now by clicking this link.
The co-development meetings are currently free and accessible to all female producers and aspiring farmers in Quebec. We invite you to let us know of your interest in participating in one of the cells regardless of the time of year. We will add you to our next cell meetings.
