Diversity Awareness (July 8-9)
Instructors: Greg Turpin, Renae Gray
Participants in this workshop experience and learn approaches aimed at enabling groups and organizations to: become more diverse; address tensions arising from lack of awareness of differences and inequalities; and undertake coalition work that dismantle traditional barriers. Dimensions of diversity addressed include race, class, gender, and sexuality.
Cultivating Collaboration (July 15-16)
Instructor: Peter Taylor
How do we become skilled and effective in contributing to collaborations? How do we lead others to develop their interest and skills in collaboration? A series of activities introduces tools and perspectives related to a 4Rs framework-respect, risk, revelation, and re-engagement.
Facilitating Participation and Collaboration in Groups (July 22-23)
Instructor: Abby Yanow
This workshop introduces students to a number of different techniques of group participation, such as working in small groups and stakeholder groups, and World Cafe or Open Space. The topics of discussion within each technique will be chosen in an effort to make the learning experience as close as possible to real-life situations, within our workplaces and our communities. We will focus on the art of careful listening and the crafting of effective questions. You will experience the generativity of the participatory process, in which the wisdom comes from the group. You will be encouraged to consider ways of implementing these techniques into your practice, with your colleagues and in your communities.
