Collaborative Facilitation Module 1: Meeting with Equality - 2 March 2023
Collaborative Facilitation provides both theory and practice in running meetings that embrace inclusiveness, diversity and equality, and implementing boundaries that ensure these outcomes. Jen Hall and Tom Colley, in association with Getup’s pilot project, a Listening Tour on Climate Impacts, are running two workshops on facilitating exactly these sorts of meetings. The workshops will up-skill those who are participating as facilitators in the Listening Tour. They are also open to anyone interested in deeply collaborative ways of meeting. Attending both workshops is recommended but not essential.
This first workshop, Meeting with Equality, is an experiential workshop that equips you with a basic toolbox for fair facilitation in meetings and gatherings of all sizes. This workshop embodies inclusive approaches that ensure everybody’s voice is heard and integrated. You will get the opportunity to experience communication structures that allow deep listening and group decision-making even in challenging situations.
The workshop will take place at at the inner space in Katoomba, 20min walk from the station (address will be provided after registration). Please arrive shortly before 10am for a relaxed start.
The workshop is free of charge. People are welcome to make donations on the day. Jen and Tom will use donations to cover their costs in running this workshop and (if there's enough) future workshops of a similar nature.
