Who We Are

The STOKE Collective is a decentralized group of facilitators, trainers, and organizers. Our members collaborate to support a range of social change projects, and are currently located across the continental United States. You can learn more about The STOKE Collective’s work on our website.

About the Webinar

Conflict can be overwhelming and messy for groups. Oftentimes, when we’re in the midst of it, it’s easy to feel like there is no way through and that the only result will be relationships or organizations breaking apart. If you have participated in social change work of any kind, you have probably had this experience of conflict.

We in STOKE believe conflict can be an opportunity to bring people closer together towards a common goal or vision. What would happen if we saw conflict as an opportunity for growth and learning instead? If we were able to move through conflict in a way where people felt heard and where resolution was possible?

In this highly participatory webinar, participants will consider their own relationships to conflict and learn frameworks for a generative approach to conflict. Participants will walk away with a toolbox of practices they can use in their own contexts, and will have the opportunity to build their conflict skills by practicing in real-time. Because identity is often an added layer in conflicts, participants will also learn practices to engage with this thoughtfully.

Who is this webinar for?

This webinar is open to anybody who is interested in strengthening their ability to move through conflict in social change work. Honing this skillset is a lifelong practice and we welcome you to join us no matter where you are in this process.

While participants can register for this training on their own, we highly encourage that organizations/groups who would like to build their skills around conflict transformation send at least two people to participate. This is to ensure each participant has a partner in applying learnings to their specific context and to discuss reflection prompts in the training with someone they already know. Participants can be anywhere, as this series will be run through Zoom. We will ask for participation verbally, in small groups, or through typing. We have found that engagement is easiest on a laptop or desktop computer vs. tablets or cell phones.

If you’re having trouble locating yourself on this sliding scale, we have found the following tool really helpful!:

“Recently, someone shared with me the idea of sacrifice versus hardship when examining access. If paying for a class, product, or service would be difficult, but not detrimental, it qualifies as a sacrifice. You might have to cut back on other spending in your life (such as going out to dinner, buying coffee, or a new outfit), but this will not have a long term harmful impact on your life. It is a sacred sacrifice in order to pursue something you are called to do. If, however, paying for a class, product, or service would lead to a harmful impact on your life, such as not being able to put food on the table, pay rent, or pay for your transportation to get to work, then you are dealing with hardship. Folks coming from a space of hardship typically qualify for the lower end of the sliding scale. I find the idea of sacrifice versus hardship to be a very useful nuance when talking about class and access because it recognizes and respects that paying for something might still be a challenge even if it is just a short-term one, while giving appropriate space for those who are dealing with financial hardship.” -Alexis J.
