Mid-Atlantic Facilitators Network
Building our April CoP, we will spend this session exploring the meaning of equality, equity, and justice/liberation and how we might apply each as facilitators both to our work as well as the outcomes reached by the groups we support. In addition to exploring these concepts, we will seek to understand the barriers that exist for people of color in group discussions and how we as facilitators can use Conversational Intelligence to create more psychologically safe spaces to mitigate against these barriers.

Not expert led- hosted by peers with space to learn from all
Create a brave space to focus on race
Share our truth and also listen to others
Start with ourselves = focus on the “inner work”
Treat others with kindness & honesty
