“Facilitating for Social Justice” Workshop for ACE Org Leaders

Castilleja School’s motto is “Women Learning, Women Leading” (Castilleja School). This commitment invites an active awareness and engagement of one’s own social identities within a diverse community, and the cultivation of understandings, habits of heart and mind, and skills to engage others inclusively and equitably. As part of its commitment to “helping students successfully navigate the successive steps and choices that bring them  to self awareness and productive growth,” the ACE Center at Castilleja has invited Blink Consulting to facilitate a  workshop on Facilitating for Social Justice on March 3, 2012.

3-hr workshop- 9 am – 12 pm ACE Center

Guiding questions:

  • What is socially just leadership?
  • How can I help others to their best thinking and action?

  • Facilitation tools to include more voices and to practice—not just strive for—equity
