Transformational Intergroup Dialogue Facilitation

Posted on November 20, 2017

Transformational Intergroup Dialogue Facilitation is a three-part series designed to help practitioners create effective spaces for learning and authentic engagement across differences based on race, gender, socioeconomic status, religion, ability and sexual orientation. Transformational Intergroup Dialogue is a social justice education approach which promotes intergroup cooperation and understanding through dialogue. Trainings have been offered in various settings across the United States over the past 3 years to support educators, leaders, activists, and entrepreneurs interested in improving intergroup relations within their classrooms, organizations, and communities.

This multi-level training program integrates academic and experiential learning and intergroup dialogue practice. Participants explore personal and interpersonal capacities for diversity and intergroup facilitation, including emotional intelligence, relationship building and multicultural awareness. While the three workshops will primarily focus on improving the capacity for intergroup engagement, they will include several intergroup dialogues to help participants understand the utility of dialogue as a process for individual and group development around social identity and social justice.


Transformational Intergroup Dialogue Facilitation is a three-part training offered over three separate, sequential workshops. Each workshop is offered over two consecutive days and will take place between 9:30am and 4:30pm. Workshops are offered year-round. Here are the dates for upcoming workshops:

Part One: Introduction to Transformational Intergroup Dialogue
