Facilitation Training

Learn to Lead Reflective Conversations

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.

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.

Scholarships are available to cover part or all of the cost of our trainings for those who are unable to pay the full amount. On the registration form, you will have the opportunity to request a scholarship and let us know how much you can contribute to attend the training. If you have questions about this process, email Rachel Bernstein at r.bernstein@oregonhumanities.org.
