Capacity Building Workshop: Inclusive and Equitable Nonprofit Leadership
Friday, January 24, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EST)
Every person in every organization resembles individual pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Each piece is uniquely shaped to fit into a specific place. While some pieces may appear to be larger than others, without all of them, even the smallest piece left out makes the puzzle incomplete.
The Everybody Matters session consists of two major components: “Appreciating Similarities,” and “Honoring Differences.” Participants are engaged throughout the process by learning from one another about the conscious act of appreciation and the importance of listening. Everyone is given an opportunity to speak. For this reason, seating is limited to the first 75 attendees.
Uniquely designed to tackle tough issues in a safe environment and to be insightfully fun, participants leave the workshop feeling empowered to truly understand, value and appreciate themselves, their employees, and are thereby enabled to become more fully supportive non-profit leaders and managers.
The Everybody Matters workshop was developed by LaShawn Erby Sithole as a best practice in diversity/inclusion model that helps all people recognize and appreciate their own uniqueness and that of others. It was designed to work well with any group of people and to date, 100% of participant evaluations have been positive. A client list is available upon request.
L. LaShawn Sithole, an entrepreneur and graduate of Baylor University, is a seasoned speaker and workshop facilitator for local, regional and national conferences. She is the author of five titles: one for Spanish speakers, three biblical study guides and one true crime story. Clients include: Baylor University Graduate School of Social Work, Texas Education Service Center - Region 12 and the Society of Human Resource Management.
Advanced registration is required. Please submit your registration for each participant.
