Webinar: Decolonizing Approaches to Inclusive Discussions and Trainings: Lessons from Indigenous Perspectives

November 14, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Free

The future of community engagement work requires a framework that is strengths-based, centers historically underrepresented groups working towards justice on their terms, and includes an analysis of power, positionality, systemic causes of disparities, needs for institutional changes, and critiques of inclusion assumptions. This session will provide decolonizing practice resources, concrete examples, and a chance to reflect on how to apply the practices to your context. Examples include an interactive session focused on how instructors, trainers, and supervisors can create environments that feel relevant, welcoming, and safe to all participants. The session is relevant to instructors, researchers, AmeriCorps Vista trainers, and Campus Compact employees and administrators in both predominantly White institutions as well as contexts with a majority of first-generation college students and large percentages of minority students, employees, and volunteers.

It is a simple, yet radical, practice. According to Lizzy Cooper Davis, “Story circles encourage us to embrace dialogue over debate and to value the nuances of experience over even the best-structured arguments.” The story circle may be used to build community within a group, to examine differences across lines of race or class, to explore...
