FACILITATION WORKSHOP101

Register for Tools for Change’s workshops at toolsforchange.net

Sat. Nov. 5, 1pm-4pm 

A major part of movement building is lots of meetings. Meetings can be inspiring, hellish, or somewhere in between. The quality of a meeting depends a lot on good facilitation. Facilitators aren’t supposed to run the show, and they do more than keep track of who wants to speak. Come learn and share strategies for fostering good communication, equity, active listening and effective decision making for meetings of all shapes and sizes.

Location: University of Toronto St George Campus (Room location is given upon registration.)

Trainers

Leah Henderson is a long-time Toronto organizer.
Jessica Bell is a lecturer at Ryerson University and a trainer with the Ruckus Society.

Suggested donation: organizations and wage-earners, $20; unwaged, $10. No one turned away for lack of funds.
