Working With Difference: Practices for Cultivating Change
Feedback form is now closed.

In this experiential session we will learn practices that help to bridge our differences of race, class, gender and other aspects of identity. Come discover how to create transformative change in individuals and organizations through awareness and story practices deeply informed by systems thinking, ecology and cutting-edge understandings of human behavior. These powerful tools can help us bring theory into practice and cultivate our capacity to stay in relationship across difference. With: Ginny McGinn, Executive Director of the Center for Whole Communities (CWC); Mohamad Chakaki, CWC Senior Fellow; Samara Gaev, CWC Senior Fellow and founder of Truthworker Theatre Co.
