Building Bridges Across Differences training

Posted by on April 26, 2010

Discrimination is serious but getting rid of it doesn’t have to be.
* Have you ever wanted to interrupt a prejudicial joke, but didn’t know how?

* Have you ever felt uncomfortable with people different from you, wondering what they’re thinking about you or if you’ll say the ‘wrong thing’?

This fun & interactive training is for people of all ages and backgrounds who want to build inclusive communities. It will develop leadership skills to gently interrupt & guide others, productively challenging society’s issues around racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, mental health oppression, religious intolerance, & more.

We anticipate a diverse crowd–students and faculty of Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Organizational Development consultants, grassroots leaders, and more.

You can pre-register online for a very low fee. If you want to bring a group, we can provide a discount.
Some of you know I lead the local chapter of an international nonprofit, NCBI Philadelphia. We train leaders in the skills of cultural competence, resolving conflicts between groups, and building coalitions. Our very low cost May 23 workshop may be of interest to you–I’ve found the skills and information of NCBI transfer well to our civic engagement work and more.

If you’d like to know more, please check out our website &/or contact me.
