Sustained Dialogue at MSU is excited to announce their annual Facilitation Training will take place October 13th (4 - 8 pm) and October 14th (9 am - 12 pm). This training will focus on skills for inclusive leadership and facilitation skills for challenging dialogues. Sustained Dialogue Institute trainer Emma Naliboff Pettit will engage attendees in facilitation skill development and deepen attendees' understanding of identity in the context of power, privilege and oppression. All attendees will walk away with a basic understanding of identity as well as techniques for moderating dialogues. This training provides attendees with the skill sets to succeed in our increasingly diverse workforce and communities.
[**General facilitation training will take place Friday evening and Saturday morning. Students interested in facilitating at the Common Ground retreat in January will continue training through Sunday afternoon.]
This is a free training for students, with meals provided. Upon completion of the training, attendees may continue their involvement with Sustained Dialogue by participating in a yearlong Facilitation Certification program. To learn more and register to attend, visit http://msusd.weebly.com/.
The mission of Sustained Dialogue is to provide opportunities for cross-cultural dialogue about the influence of gender, race, ethnicity, class, religion, sexual orientation, ability, and age on student experiences and campus community relations. Sustained Dialogue seeks to empower students to address -- through dialogue and social action -- the root causes of identity-related conflicts by creating spaces in which students develop a deeper understanding of their peers, share their own experiences, and learn how to create positive social change.
