Designing meetings for productive discussion and collaboration on equity work requires intentional planning that is responsive to both the emotional and cognitive/intellectual needs of participants. We believe that, when planning adult learning, it’s essential to design an experience people will go through together that moves beyond a series of tasks or agenda items. This is particularly true when a group is engaging in conversations focused on issues of equity or other emotionally-charged challenges that arise while working together.
In this free webinar, we will offer a framework for participant engagement used by the National Equity Project in professional learning opportunities that support authentic engagement, meaningful collaboration and movement forward on challenging and important work. Join the National Equity Project as we share some of the foundations of designing agendas for equity conversations in service of transforming the life trajectories of historically underserved youth.
