What does it take to sustain positive change when we live in the social, political, and economic systems that we seek to transform? This interactive workshop teaches the Be Present Empowerment Model®, a celebrated leadership development process that supports people to foster transformative change that honors the justice that we seek. Together as a community of practice we will move through three interconnected leadership realms as we examine the impact of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, power, and more, on the effectiveness of our relationships and social movements. Through group discussion, small group exploration, and individual work, you will be shown how to be present in your life, strengthen self-knowledge, and enhance your abilities to consciously listen to and effectively partner with others.
For thirty years, the Be Present Empowerment Model®, created by Lillie Allen, has strengthened the capacity of individuals, families, schools, communities, organizations, and workplaces to thrive.
In this family-friendly workshop, participants will discover how to:
• Build authentic relationships based on trust and mutual responsibility
• Foster open dialogue and broadened understanding
• Develop enduring partnerships for transformative change
Children and youth, our next generation of leaders, are active participants in this workshop. All ages are welcome.
