Transitioning to virtual activism: tips for effective and engaging online meetings

1. Determine how you will communicate as a group.

2. Check in to see how members of your group are doing.

3. Set up a virtual meeting to connect with your group.

4. Get ready for your meeting!

5. Tips

  • Prep your tech in advance — make sure you’ve downloaded Zoom, the sound and video are working, and that everyone has the Zoom link and access to the slide deck.
  • Offer a “pre-meeting tech check in” before the call starts to troubleshoot any issues.
  • If possible, ask everyone to join by video. This allows for a greater sense of connectedness and they’ll likely focus more on the meeting if they can see each other.
