After last year’s successful “Anti-Oppressive Communication for Stage Manager”, many participants asked for a more practical application of the concepts. While this session is structured to be a continuation of the learning that was started last year, there is no requirement to have attended that session.
With the goal of creating an inclusive workplace through anti-oppressive communication, this session is built upon three case studies. Participants will receive the case studies prior to the session. You will be asked to answer three questions about each case study and submit your answers anonymously.
- How would you approach this situation?
- What emotions come up for you in reading this case study?
- What questions do you have about how to respond to the situation?
Session leader, Tenniel Brown, will take these submissions and craft a session that unpacks the emotions, solutions, and themes she finds in the responses. The goal is to confront the discomfort, dissect the possible outcomes, and build our resiliency and consistency. In the words of Samuel Beckett, “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
WHEN: Monday, November 22
