Support group for people who want to do community work well

As mentioned on twitter and in DEI question time, I am seeking support from people who do work similar to me: supporting a community to make a change that benefits them and also improves the system for everyone. How can we do our work well? What do we need to be aware of? How can we learn and grow together? I welcome people who identify with these questions or who have further requests and needs to gather to discuss a means for us to support each other and exchange knowledge and take part in and influence the professionalisation of community building/support work. I do not convene this session as a leader but I offer to facilitate this discussion as someone who needs the support myself!
