Sustained Dialogue Would Like to Invite Students to an Inclusive Facilitator Training
October 2, 2015 from 4:00-8:00pm and October 3, 2015 from 9:00am-5:00pm
Sustained Dialogue is an organization devoted to fostering dialogues on campus issues among diverse groups of students. Diversity is an inclusive word; it is not limited to underrepresented groups talking about diverse issues. Sustained Dialogue needs students with strong underrepresented identities, but also people who think that they are "not diverse" as well as students whose identities are considered "diverse," but who might not personally feel that way. Sustained Dialogue only succeeds when we really hear from everyone.
The SD Inclusive Facilitator Training provides students and campus leaders from key campus organizations (student government, affinity groups, residential life, etc.) with the tools and skills to effectively navigate identity differences, make more informed decisions, increase civic agency, and build empathy and dialogue on campus. The training provides a unique space where individuals will gain facilitation skills, learn to lead classroom and co-curricular activities, and brainstorm with other committed change agents to solve real problems in diversity and inclusion in unique ways. We want to create dialogues where none existed before: between politically focused groups and community service organizations, sports teams and cultural groups, groups concerned with student health and tutoring organizations.
