Webinar: Braving the Wilderness, How Vulnerability Can Be a Pathway for Social Change – Feb 13
As community engagement leaders, we navigate institutional power, internalized conditioning and patterns of entitlement through seen and unseen hierarchal systems. During this interactive webinar, you will learn a framework to give language and understanding for how fear and power imbalances impact our capacity to communicate and connect with people across power and dominance. Instead of retreating and protecting, we will explore what it means to remain “value-based” and vulnerable as you build and deepen authentic relationships across these barriers as the foundation for systemic and transformative justice. You will be asked to reflect on times you have braved the wilderness advocating for change to systems that perpetuate fear and power imbalances. And the times when you haven’t. What have you learned from those experiences? How can those experiences help each of us as leaders to advance change within the context of our community engagement work centered on equity and inclusion? Please note, this workshop will invite participants to share their personal experiences and stretch their comfort zone.
