Anyone who is or would like to be engaged in efforts to undo structural racism in our families, communities, faith groups, schools, groups or organizations may attend. You may be deeply engaged in a Racial Justice project or seeking the courage to step forward. They invite everyone who is seeking frameworks and skills to support our collective journey to bring stories, questions, wisdom and curiosity. 

During this training, participants will:

  • Learn the basic assumptions and world views underpinning the Art of Hosting and Participatory Leadership.
  • Explore case studies that demonstrate the role of hosting transformative conversations in racial justice efforts.
  • Practice participatory methodologies for hosting conversations that engage diverse perspectives and foster co-learning.
  • Practice creating powerful questions that invite transformative conversations about race and equity. 
  • Experience the inclusion and embodiment of art and creative expression in collective sense making.

Early registration fee is $190 until August 31, $250 after 8/31.
