Friday-Sunday, July 15-17: AORTA Facilitation Skill Building 3-day Workshop at Omni Commons.
Workshop is three days: afternoon/evening of Friday, July 15th, all day July 16th, all day July 17th.
Space is limited to 35 participants. We expect this workshop to fill; register as soon as possible to ensure a spot.Even groups with great meeting process inadvertently perpetuate barriers to full member participation and access to democratic process. This happens through group dynamics of power, privilege, and oppression that often marginalize women, people of color, queer, trans, and gender non-conforming folks, people with disabilities, and those with limited access to the cultural cues that come with class privilege. This weekend training for facilitators will center integrating an analysis of systemic power throughout our facilitation work.
We will move beyond basic skills to explore how to address systemic power as it arises in groups, how our identities impact our facilitation style and approach, as well as how we can build our skills to be more effective facilitators. Topics included will be: group decision making; supporting groups in conflict; naming, intervening, and addressing systemic power as it arises; working with multiracial, multicultural groups.
The suggested fee for this workshop is $300, $100-$400 sliding scale. If you are part of a well-funded organization or have access to money/wealth, we ask that you pay at the higher end of the sliding scale. This allows participants with less access to resources to attend and pay at the bottom of the sliding scale.
