Join RNW consultants and past training participants for community building and collaboration.

  • Prerequisite: These sessions are open to anyone who has attended one of the following trainings with RNW:
    • Introduction to Restorative Justice or Advanced Circle Training  
    • Artful Facilitation or Mindful Facilitation
    • Institutional Equity (or any training with the equity Sun Framework)

What challenges are you currently facing? Do you have a recent project you want to debrief? Are you looking for design suggestions for an upcoming event? Are you struggling to de-center whiteness in mainstream meeting culture?
These sessions are a great opportunity to:

  • Share challenges, successes and lessons learned among peers
  • Talk through meeting or group process design options, to clarify and advance your meeting’s purpose
  • Brainstorm strategies for shifting power, centering the most impacted, healing harm, and advancing racial equity
  • Explore ways to respond to challenging interactions or group dynamics
  • Build community with others to help sustain you in your work

If you are able to join us at the next session, please RSVP below so we know how many of you to expect.

Hope to see you on April 15th!

Please note: RNW’s facilitation trainings have continued to evolve to better align with our mission. Our recent trainings, Artful Facilitation Grounded in Racial Equity, have begun by acknowledging the ways white supremacy culture tends to be embedded in group processes and looking for ways to transform our practice. We may refer to the article White Supremacy Culture in the praxis workshop. We encourage you to read it here
