About this event

This is a two-part online course from Washington Nonprofits. These trainings will take place on October 22 and October 29, 2020.

Two of the most important skills of an effective community leader are the ability to facilitate group discussions and help groups make decisions together in a way that engages all the voices in the group. Too often we get thrown into the role of facilitator without having been taught the fundamentals and/or the chance to practice. In this two-part online series, you will have an opportunity to practice and receive feedback with peers in a fun, interactive and non-threatening environment. Additionally, we will explore tools for collaborating in a virtual environment.

In the first session, participants will learn the fundamental skills of facilitating conversations in which all voices are heard and engaged in collaborative decision making. In the second session, participants will learn meeting planning and management skills that work both online and in-person. They will also explore ways and platforms for virtual collaboration.

Please contact Sharayah Lane with any questions.
