"This program is for anyone who participates in collective processes. Whether you are new to collaboration or a seasoned facilitator, it's a unique opportunity to learn, practice and build community at the same time."
Reimagining Collaboration participant
How we work together matters. We all have stories of difficult collaborations: endless meetings, draining partnerships, strained relationships. When we get stuck, we miss opportunities to spark meaningful change. In our work for social and climate justice we need the skills to have hard conversations, work with multiple perspectives, and find ways to move forward together.
In this program, we explore how to shape more transformative collaborations. We focus on deepening our self-awareness and developing the abilities to work creatively, intentionally, and whole-heartedly with the complexity of groups.
Whether you lead meetings, hold space for multi-stakeholder gatherings or movements, or participate in team or community processes, this program is for you.
