System Convening – what’s it all about?, October 2023

The New System Alliance, working with Hackney Borough Council and NHS England/the Health Foundation’s Q Community, surveyed people to find out if the Systems Conveners we are aware of are part of an emerging field. We had over 80 responses, the overwhelming majority identifying themselves as Systems Conveners in some way. We are happy to share our briefing, System Convening – what you told us, summarising what was shared about the role, their learning and what they need to do their jobs well.

To continue the conversation, invited you to an energetic and interactive online get together on the 31st of October at 11am-12.30pm, where we:

– Briefly explored what was shared by the 80 contributing System Conveners

– Connected with others and explored the motivations behind Systems Convening and your hopes for the change you’re trying to create

– Decided whether there is a need and energy behind creating an ongoing community of practice, or action network, for Systems Conveners, and what it should focus on and do
