The DCI’s Deliberation Facilitator Training Program will equip participants with the knowledge and skills to facilitate difficult conversations across difference. The training will help participants host more vibrant, meaningful, and constructive interactions in their organizations, with their friends and family, and in their communities. The two-part training takes place Sept. 11 and Sept. 17 from 1:30-5:30 pm (both sessions required). Please register here by Sept. 6.
This hands-on, interactive workshop will train participants in innovative techniques that will improve their ability to facilitate difficult discussions about political and social issues among people who may have very different backgrounds, values, and opinions. Although such facilitation can be challenging, it is increasingly needed in a world that is facing a host of immense challenges that require people to come together to solve issues collaboratively. Well-trained facilitators can help us honestly, respectively, and productively engage with these challenges and seek out innovative solutions.
