Sign Up for Courageous Conversations

Several chapters have reached out on their own to schedule Courageous Conversations for the Spring '14 semester, but we wanted to pass along the opportunity to all as we're now taking schedule requests for January thru April. 

WHAT: Courageous Conversations
Courageous Conversations is a two-part workshop series where participants learn and apply a framework for engaging with others despite having differences in opinions and perspectives.  Much of the series is conversation-based, focusing on topics such as heterosexism, genderism, racism, and other systems of oppression.   

The program is broken into two parts, each part taking place on a separate date and with a run time of 2-3 hours per part.  In total, its a six hour commitment scheduled over the course of 1-2 weeks. 

WHEN: Spring '14
We're currently scheduling dates for Spring 2014.  
The program will only be scheduled Monday through Thursday in the 4:10-7PM time slot with few exceptions. 

WHO: 15-25 chapter members 
Participants must attend both parts - no tagging in and out, no illegal substitutions.  Any less than 15 makes it difficult to do some of the activities and any more than 25 prevents us from having more intimate discussion where everyone participates.   

Reply to Ash Baudouin at amb512@lehigh.edu indicating your chapter's interest in participating.  Workshops will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.    

Let us know if you have any questions or would like to learn more.
