Large Online Trainings with Impact

Groups are using large online trainings and webinars to build movements at the scale of the crises we face. Even in mass spaces (with 50 to thousands of people), leadership development, relationship building, and moving people to action are key, but large online events might leave you wondering if you reached your goals or made an impact. Large online trainings and webinars CAN be energizing, connecting, build on the wisdom of the group, and grow powerful movements. This training will help you choose whether a large training or webinar fits your goals, and if so, how to maximize its impact, regardless of which platforms you use.

Bilingual versions of this workshop are offered in partnership with Talleristas por la Justicia and will have simultaneous English/Spanish interpretation.

Length: 2 hours



Participation in this workshop is donation-based.


  • Understand benefits and drawbacks of large online trainings and webinars (with 50 to thousands of people) and how to decide whether to do one.
  • Have strategies for clarifying purpose, planning your design and identifying roles in advance for a smooth and effective program.
  • Have tools you can use immediately to make your large online trainings and webinars effective. This includes ways to engage participants and lift up the wisdom and experience they bring with them (regardless of the software you are using).


Anyone who is training online and wants to increase their effectiveness using interactive and experiential tools working with large groups. We welcome a range of experiences – from beginner online facilitators to long-time trainers. Some face-to-face facilitation experience is helpful for this training.


This is an interactive online training using the Zoom platform. Come prepared to participate fully, just as you would an in-person training. Please try to connect from a quiet place on a computer with headphones. A computer with a webcam and high-speed internet are recommended to get the most out of the training.

Details for how to connect will be sent prior to the training. The training will include follow-up resources you can use after. We’ll cover tech strategies that apply across software options, but for training on specific software, individual coaching is recommended.


This training will take place online in the Zoom meetings platform. Our trainings offer multiple ways to engage in activities and we do our best to apply best practices in visual accessibility on our slides and handouts including using high contrast and alt text. Closed captioning, sign language interpretation, and advanced copies of the slides are offered if requests are received up to 1 week before the training. 

If there is anything else that would make this training more accessible to you, please email us directly or make a note in your registration form.


Attendees are eligible for post-workshop coaching sessions. We’ve found that follow-up coaching maximizes lessons learned, so we’ve dedicated capacity to support integration of new skills and tools back home.

We offer hourly individual and small group coaching around your specific needs. For example, you could use sessions for support choosing online platforms, evaluating online trainings, designing hybrid programs, preparing for an upcoming online meeting, learning Zoom features, etc. Attendees can request coaching, here, after the workshop.
