LEADING CONVERSATIONS: BEST PRACTICES IN FACILITATION
Leadership Metro Richmond and the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities have partnered to create a three-part training on best practices in facilitation. In these divisive times, tough issues are emerging in our communities, in the workplace, and at home. Open dialogue is critical but it also requires proper facilitation. This training will strengthen the Richmond region by equipping our community leaders with the tools they need to lead conversations in a manner that is inclusive, informative, and effective.  This program will not only offer practical tips but will also give participants the opportunity to put their new skills into practice.

THREE-PART TRAINING:
Friday, February 7, 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM *lunch provided for first session
Friday, February 21, 1:00 PM- 5:00 PM
Friday, March 6, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
 *In case of snow, March 20 is being held for any session that may need to be rescheduled

Corporate Registration: $450
Discounted Nonprofit Registration: $200

CONVENING LEADERS: SCHOOL REZONING
In our region and beyond, school rezoning surfaces many issues including that of segregation by race and economic background. As it was in the past, the Richmond region remains at the nexus of conversations and policies about school integration. Join us as we discuss:

- What is the difference between desegregation and integration?

- How do shifting demographics, priorities, and views across the region shift our understanding of the challenge and potential solutions?

- What can this community do---and what are others doing--to prepare K12 students for the ever-increasing multi-dimensional diversity of both the present and future?

WOMAN SPEAK YOUR TRUTH

Creating safe spaces that require trust, invite vulnerability and foster relationships among this region's community leaders is part of the LMR mission.  On the first Thursday of every month, LMR in partnership with Rita Ricks (LMR '89) will host a small group of female alumni for authentic conversation around both their challenges and their hopes for the future.  We must be comfortable speaking our truth and be comfortable with some disagreement.  It's how we grow and make a difference.

LMR ALUMNI ONLY

DATE: First Thursday of the month
TIME: 6:00 - 8:00PM
LOCATION: 9211 Forest Hill Avenue
