Restorative Justice for Organizations

Starts: November 4, 2018 9:00 am | Ends: November 4, 2018 4:00 pm

Restorative practices are not just for schools and the justice system, they can also be used for addressing conflict in the workplace. This workshop will explore how restorative practices have the potential to dismantle oppressive systems and create more equitable organizational outcomes.

Restorative Justice is about changing systems to address harm more meaningfully and undo systematic patterns of institutional racism and oppression. Restorative Practices are the ways in which individuals and communities can more meaningfully build relationships and address harm when it happens, and work towards restorative justice.

In this training, we will explore

  • the differences between punitive vs. restorative organizational cultures and processes
  • basic principles of restorative justice
  • the interconnectedness of equity and restorative justice
  • the conflict culture of your organization
  • first steps for creating a restorative organizational culture

Participants will engage in a supportive learning community and walk away with strategies and resources to bring back to your workplace/organization.

Natalia MathewsNatalia was born and raised in Northeast Portland and has always had a heart for inner-city youth in this community. Her past work experience includes: mentoring at-risk youth, school support staff member, restorative justice specialist, and her current position is Co-director of restorative justice. Natalia received a Bachelor’s of Science in Human Development in 2014, a Master’s in Management and Organizational Leadership in 2016  , and is currently pursuing a doctorate in education from Concordia University. She loves to spend time with her family. When she’s not working or doing homework, you can catch her having a picnic, or enjoying quiet time. Natalia has committed herself to equity work, and minimizing disproportionate data.  She believes in order to achieve this goal, restorative practices are the key.

Maria ScanelliMaria’s passion for ending cycles of harm began as a young child. She saw how individuals, families, communities and systems repeat unlearned and unhealed lessons, which leads to cycles of harm. Life led her to Restorative Justice (RJ) and the philosophy has become a way of life more than a job. Maria has been a volunteer for the Dept. of Corrections and the Oregon Youth Authority since 2008 as a Restorative Justice Group Facilitator and as a Dialogue Facilitator for serious and violent harms. She completed her MS in Conflict Resolution from Portland State University in 2008 and joined Resolutions Northwest in 2011. She has taught college and high school classes in RJ and has been a trainer, dialogue and circle facilitator for youth, families, adults and organizations for over 12 years. She most appreciates the constant learning, unlearning and relationship building that is essential to dismantling the sticky webs of oppression. “You can’t be neutral on a moving train.” Howard Zinn
