Trainer – Bill Say, M.A.

As facilitators and mediators, an important part of what we are mediating and facilitating is our human diversity and the complex rank and privilege dynamics associated with those differences. This experiential training includes key diversity awareness concepts, practical tools, awareness development work, and small and large group sessions to give you ample opportunities to practice, learn, explore, discuss and grow.

Goals:

Learn how rank and privilege influence conflict, communication, and relationships
Become more comfortable talking about diversity issues
Analyze and understand relationship tensions and conflicts related to human differences
Intervene in groups and mediations when diversity issues arise
Learn how to create more inclusive and welcoming environments
Dates: 6-week course held on Wednesday evenings.
