Facilitated by Javiera Benavente, Maya Sungold and Jamila Jackson
The Ethics & the Common Good Changemaker Cohort is a practice-based learning community that supports the cultivation of relational leadership and collaborative change-making. In this course, we will engage with a variety of theories, approaches, methods, and practices to support students in developing and growing their identities and work as facilitators, especially in building communities of practice, supporting group process, and facilitating collective learning in service of change. We will draw inspiration and guidance from adrienne maree brown’s recent book Emergent Strategies: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds, which we will read throughout the semester. By the end of the semester, each participant will plan and facilitate their own workshops, in and out of the cohort space, as an application of the learning they are building.
