Event description

Description

How can we effectively “do good” in our non-profit programs, school activities, community organizing, and lives?

How can we ensure that our good intentions aren’t reinforcing inequality and injustice?

Join Seachange Collective for an interactive, 1-day workshop on "grounded program design."

We’ll introduce you to a six-step approach that helps you develop and implement initiatives based in community needs and justice – rather than assumed knowledge and charity. Facilitators will guide participants in reflecting on their experiences, the first four steps of the grounded program design process, and the complexities of anti-oppression work and social justice practice. Each participant will workshop their own real-life examples and develop personalized action plans to align their social justice values with their work.

Who should participate? This workshop is ideal for folks in non-profits, schools, community organizing, public service organizations, and other spaces seeking a stronger commitment to social justice – especially if you design and implement program strategy and on-the-ground initiatives.

Ongoing Support and Accountability: After our workshops, we provide ongoing support to participants over several months, to help with your continued planning or implementation of ideas. This includes:

  • Tangible goal-setting and accountability checks

  • Seachange Collective cohort webinars to discuss progress, questions, challenges, and shared strategies

  • Optional: We can offer additional workshops or advising for your team on specific projects. Talk to us about what you need!

What have past participants said?

"[The Seachange Collective] workshop and this creative and inclusive space created the necessary room to connect with other social-justice inclined individuals and share alternative perspectives on seemingly impossible challenges." — Emily Grubb, Program Specialist, Open Society Foundations

"This training is so important for anyone involved in decision making at their organization. I loved the chance to reflect on my current and past work to help better inform my choices for the future." - Christopher Ahearn, Director of Partnerships, Reach the World

Pricing: We run our workshops on a sliding-scale model, to ensure we remain accessible for organizers, non-profit staff, and public servants across a spectrum of roles and budgets.
