Restorative Justice for Organizations

Starts: November 29, 2018 9:00 am | Ends: November 29, 2018 4:00 pm

*New Location* Humboldt Gardens Community Room, 5033 N Vancouver Ave, Portland, OR 97217 (bus line #44)

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.
