Facilitate for Freedom: Centering Anti-Oppression in Facilitation, Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Friday, 03. May 2019

Facilitating groups towards full member participation and democratic process can be challenging, especially when dealing with dynamics of power and oppression that often marginalize women, people of color, *****, trans, and gender non-conforming folks, people with disabilities, and those with limited access to the cultural cues that come with class privilege. Some simple tools can drastically shift the energy of a meeting, might help you hear new voices, and invite the perspectives of all participants. Join AORTA (Anti-Oppression Resource and Training Alliance) for a free day long workshop to practice and build confidence to disrupt harmful dynamics and move towards facilitating for justice.By the end of this training participants will:-Learn advanced skills to address systemic power when it arises in groups-Gain a greater understanding on how our own identities impact our facilitation style-Practice skills that lead to justice including group decision making, supporting groups in conflict, and naming, intervening, and addressing systemic power when it arises.-Learn strategies for working with multiracial and multicultural groups that allow for full participation.
