When planning adult learning and collaboration, it’s essential to design an experience that moves beyond a series of tasks or items to address. This is particularly true when guiding a group through conversations focused on issues of equity and other emotionally-charged challenges. Designing and Facilitating Meetings for Equity offers essential knowledge and skills for setting the conditions necessary for effective discussion and collaboration focused on equity work, as well as facilitation skills to support you to respond to the particular dynamics of your group.
“If you have struggled with how to create meeting agendas and facilitate meetings that move your team towards equity, then this is the workshop you need. These 2 days were some of the best training I have received and the virtual session worked amazingly well.”
—Rhonda Beasley, Coordinator, Santa Clara County Office of Education, June 2020 Virtual Participant
"I loved every second of this training with NEP. It provided me with tools for my own application but also the time to connect and learn from others and their contexts, which gave me new ideas and also support. I especially appreciated that NEP modeled the tools that were shared with us, and called them out so we were able to experience the tool as a learner and also consider how we would apply it as a facilitator."
