Martin Thörnkvist, director of The Conference, plans the event so it will have equal representation of men and women.
While not church-specific (The Conference is about “exploring complexity in a digital world”), Thörnkvist outlines a helpful process to act his values. He realized after initial criticism that he was thinking about his values, but neither living them nor demonstrating them, and has since changed many aspects of the event in order to keep representation of men and women equal.
Thörnkvist explains his method in detail in a posting on the Medium.
From the post:
- Write your values down
- Start with topics
- Communicate your values every time you ask for help
- Be stubborn
Can you see ways to apply his process to your church or church-related events? Is there anything you’d add?
