RJ 101 for ORGANIZATIONS
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to principles and processes of restorative justice and restorative practice, and develop skills in facilitating circles and restorative conversations. Our expert practitioners will guide the group through circle practices for prevention and response to everyday harms that occur in workplaces, and organizations, such as racial and gendered micro-aggressions, escalating conflicts, gossip and rumors. Participants will gain perspective on their own identities as restorative leaders, shifting emphasis to relationships and strategies for building communities of supportive accountability and care. The group will focus on ways to develop workplaces and organizations that engage restorative practices in meetings, decision-making, and responses to conflict and harm.
Note: in response to social distancing guidelines, we will hold this training online, in 2.5-hour sessions over a 4-day period. To make the most of the experience, participants will prepare for the training by completing several readings and watching short films, and will be asked to complete homework between sessions.
