On today’s episode, our guests are Susan Basterfield and Gina Stevens-Rembe, collaborators in the Enspiral Network, a collective of social enterprises, ventures, and individuals working collaboratively across the world to support people who want to spend their lives changing the world. Enspiral builds collaborative tools and processes to facilitate the sharing of money through participatory budgets, the sharing of control through collaborative decision-making, and the sharing of information through their Handbook of agreements and guidelines. Aside from her role as Enspiral’s Foundation Director, Susan also co-founded Greaterthan, a professional training and coaching organization at the forefront of decentralized, self-managed, and participatory work. Gina’s passion for equity and justice led her to her current role as Operations Lead of Enspiral’s Developer’s Academy. We speak to Susan and Gina today about the work they do, the vision they bring, and how they are leveraging both to transform the way we think and go about work.
During our conversation, Susan, Gina, and I referenced the following resources and topics:
- The concept of "emotional labor"
- Loomio, an open-source collaboration platform for collective decision-making, part of the Enspiral network
- The "Parihaka" movement of non-violent resistance
- The "Treaty of Waitangi"
- Jo Freeman's "Tyranny of Structurelessness"
- The network's book, "Better Work Together"
