Facilitation Training

Learn to Lead Reflective Conversations

Joseph Glode

Oregon Humanities' facilitation training prepares people to plan and facilitate conversations about vital issues and ideas across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds. These discussions help build strong relationships within organizations and among communities.

Our trainings will strengthen your skills to plan and facilitate conversations about the big questions that drive your work in the world both at work and within the broader community. During the training, you will participate in reflective discussions in large and small groups and deepen your knowledge of techniques to lead them. All participants have the opportunity to plan a conversation and receive feedback from trainers and other participants.

We cap our trainings so that each attendee can receive the best hands-on facilitation experience. Each workshop is limited to the first twenty people to sign up.

Trainings cost $450. By paying this amount you are covering the cost of your participation and allowing us to continue to offer the option for smaller organizations and individuals to pay what they are able. On the registration form you will have the opportunity to let us know what you can pay for the training. Your answer does not affect your registration. If you have questions about this process, email Rachel Bernstein at r.bernstein@oregonhumanities.org.

How often are these classes offered? I am interested, these dates do not work (from LaGrande, this time).
