This workshop will review key intercultural communication theories and concepts, and how to apply them in communication between adults. Much of what is taught in graduate diversity classes stems from social justice and multicultural traditions. The intercultural perspective is complimentary; where the other traditions tend to focus more on the individual or group characteristics in isolation, the intercultural perspective focuses on the interaction. Intercultural communication allows us to greatly expand our skills, and go beyond empathy, understanding, and “do’s & don’ts” type interventions. This workshop is designed for those working in “helping professions”, such as counselors, therapists, and educators, as well as for staff and leadership in schools, clinics, nonprofits and other organizational settings, and for community members seeking to improve their communication, work more effectively, and build better relationships with diverse populations.

At one time or another, many of us wish to talk about death. Whether it be thoughts surrounding our own impending death, feelings about the death of a loved one, or opinions on how death is viewed in our society, a Death Cafe is a place to have open-minded, open-hearted and open-ended conversations about death and dying in a setting free of agenda, stigma and ideology. What’s it like to attend a Death Cafe? - A Death Cafe is a place to discuss whatever is on your mind regarding death - Discussion is 100% participant-generated, and there is no agenda or curriculum - Discussion takes place in small groups with a volunteer facilitator In the last 5 years, there have been more than 3,000 Death Cafes in over 35 countries. This international movement hopes to increase awareness and generate discussion surrounding the topic of death and dying, and help people make the most of their (finite) lives. To learn more about Death Cafe’s, visit DeathCafe.com. Cost: Free! RSVP required. Morning beverages and refreshments will be served.

Join the Art of Hosting for an Art of Participatory Leadership Intensive. The Art of Hosting practice was born out of the field of large group facilitation, where self-organization and “a leader in every seat” are prime organizing principles. We marry the new leadership paradigms of complexity science and living systems theory with accessible design tools and frameworks. Many practitioners and leaders are seeking processes, tools and engagement strategies that bring out the best in our communities and foster deeper collaboration. That’s what the Art of Participatory Leadership is all about. Why Attend?  • Broaden the skill set within your group; work more effectively and enjoyably together; engage teams, organizations and community stakeholders in meaningful conversations that promote resilience, belonging and innovation. • Enhance your skills and abilities to see and address difficult questions; transform conflict into creative cooperation; develop confidence; use wise process planning architectures for small and large scale initiatives; and host strategic conversations. • Connect with other leaders addressing crucially needed changes and explore how you can work more powerfully together.
