Come hang out with a fun group of facilitators!
Cultivating “Active, Authentic Allyship” for Racial Equity and Inclusion – A Facilitator’s Role
We will explore best practices and conduct facilitated activities that are designed to take people from passive, self-proclaimed “not racists” to active, authentic “anti-racist” allies. Facilitators can be instrumental in helping people become more self-aware and authentic in seeing and neutralizing implicit bias, microaggression, and exclusionary policies and practices. With the right guidance, the members of an organization or community will take the lead and do the work of creating a radically inclusive culture that finally capitalizes on the potential of diversity.
Using a proven change process, addressing root causes and tapping into people’s personal “whys” and individual strengths, we will share how to create a path to allyship for every non-color person and a path to trust and receptivity to allyship for every person of color in your group or organization.
Facilitators: Tracy Laveque and Special Guest Alexis Douglas, Coach, Anti-Racist and Non-Violent Communications Educator, Transformation Catalyst. www.AskAlexis111.com
The Facilitation Special Interest Group (SIG) is dedicated to helping members hone their facilitation skills, gain opportunities to practice new approaches and techniques, and discuss critical aspects of life as a facilitator.
Whether you're a full-time facilitator or just have an interest in building the skill, this SIG is for you!

What's a SIG?
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are small groups of members who share an affinity for a particular aspect of Talent Development. Whether it's a specific approach, a certain skill, or a common role in the industry, a SIG helps bring chapter members together to share in an interest.
Anyone can start a SIG - all it takes is a shared interest and a meeting place! To learn more, contact Shonna Amos, VP Development, firstname.lastname@example.org.
