Storytelling is an ancient human technology meant to encapsulate information and build connections. We are all capable of sharing our stories and more importantly, to witnessing and hearing each other with openness and compassion.

Many of us set out with the very best of intentions but are not always able to discern how best to implement our ideals. This course will allow participants hands-on practice using the fundamentals of storytelling: intentions vs. impact, inciting action, deep listening, facing challenges, and resolution; to bring about measurable and meaningful change in their lives and at their organizations.

How can we strategically explore and dismantle problematic racial structures in our organizations using our own personal stories?

During this training, facilitators will guide participants in the following:

+ Exploring institutional narratives and the structures.
+ Practicing deep listening, especially with regards to the language of power & privilege.
+ Role-play for navigating difficult conversations.

Join us in this training to explore how storytelling can be used to develop concrete strategies to help individuals and organizations actively engaged in anti-racist work.
