My name is Jen Mein. Moxxim grew out of my passion for designing and hosting meaningful engagements - meetings, group retreats, large events, or workshops. I design engagements with intentional thinking about the context and content, the participatory processes, and the overall experience. I design for the tangible outcomes as well as the intangibles like ensuring all feel seen, heard, and valued. I design with the desire to create a sense of creative flow, the kind that taps energy and also gives energy. I design with the whole person in mind, honoring lived experience and social identities, mindful of power and privilege. I design with confluence, understanding where a pivotal event fits within the story of what came before and what comes after. I design knowing that we are entering a chaordic space, where chaos and order exist together and magic happens by providing just enough structure so unknown and unpredictable nuggets of wisdom have space to emerge. I host with humility, honoring and bearing witness to the brilliance of those who gather. It is a privilege and an honor to create space for and share space with empowered people.
I, Jen Mein, fully embrace the belief that we can achieve more when we work with others. I am grateful to have strong relationships with fellow facilitators who I collaborate with in work and learning. I also partner with evaluators and researchers with public policy knowledge to answer questions that matter to you.
