About the Event
Can you imagine a world where there is social cohesion aimed at creating a world where everyone’s needs are met? Do you long for people from all walks of life to work together to heal historical wounds that keep us divided and stuck in cycles of oppression?
To examine how to forge greater human connections in service of fostering social change using Nonviolent Communication and fierce compassion, please join Becky Robinson of Weaving Influence for a powerful webinar with Roxy Manning and Sarah Peyton.
During this 60-minute webinar, you will learn more about an approach we believe can lead us closer to achieving the vision of Beloved Community which includes:
Practical tools and frameworks for having antiracist conversations that can lead to changed individual and group behaviors and more life-serving systems.
Identifying the values that motivate all human actions in order to expand our understanding of what is possible to achieve life-serving outcomes for all.
Different approaches to raise awareness and advocate for change.
Don’t miss this opportunity to discover the underlying values that motivate all people and how you can do your part to encourage the open dialogue that promotes transformation. Save the date and join us!
