ABOUT THIS ONLINE WORKSHOP
As educators and activists leading the work around diversity, equity and inclusion in our schools, we are often called on to facilitate courageous conversations across identity, power, and difference. Though there are many dialogue models and tools, visuals can help set the stage, support thinking, and catalyze breakthroughs. Engage with veteran facilitators to learn common facilitation models, avoid pitfalls, and manage polarity. Learn visual facilitation from experts to help people see issues and perspectives more clearly. Through this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to unpack practical strategies on facilitating courageous conversations, practice facilitating, and leave with a visual toolset to deepen their practice.
- Learn practical strategies for facilitating courageous conversations
- Have opportunities to collaborate with other facilitators advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion work
- Gain a visual toolset to support their facilitation practice
