Book a Meeting Room
This coaching series is focused on organizations, government and nonprofit agencies that want to learn about and evolve their practices and policies to become more inclusive. Each of the cohorts (peer learning groups) will spend time attending six sessions of training with Julie Nelson, Senior Vice-President at the Center for Social Inclusion and Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society at UC Berkeley. The series began in September, 2016 and will be coming to a close this winter.
For a full day at each session, participants explore best practices, tools and resources to create, test and implement equitable and inclusive practices and policies within and across institutions and sectors.
Cohorts participate in a structured curriculum focused on strategies that normalize conversations about race and inclusion, operationalize new policies and cultures, and organize to achieve racial equity. Through this process, cohort participants will help create more inclusive practices toward marginalized racial and religious groups, the economically marginalized such as the homeless and other low-income clients, and others such as non-English speaking residents.
The quarterly process allows several months for implementation of action steps by cohort participants before a new topic is introduced and, over the whole period, time for adjustments and monitoring progress. Between each quarterly training, cohorts are able to check in to support peer progress, with GARE participating via phone or videoconferencing.
Each participant/organization will receive tools, resources, coaching and peer support to plan and implement objectives based on needs and context:
Application of tools and resources will vary based on interests of a cohort, which could include staff/board recruitment and retention practices, robust engagement of non-English-speaking or homeless communities, effective partnership with Native communities, practices of particular departments or teams relating to diverse communities, and/or a myriad of other possibilities. There will be opportunities for skill building, strategy development and peer-to-peer networking and problem-solving.
