Facilitation Training: Leading Reflective Discussions

Joseph Glode

Oregon Humanities trains discussion facilitators to lead conversations about vital issues and ideas across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds. These discussions help build strong relationships within organizations and among communities.

This two-day training will help you:

  • Get people talking across differences about the big questions that drive their work in the world
  • Plan and facilitate conversations on issues you care about within your organization or in the broader community


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.
