The facilitation Guide

From Dr. Jen Fry and Dr. Victoria Farris

Leading and engaging in discussion about topics that we have been socialized to consider as potentially polarizing topics–like race, inclusion, and diversity–can be difficult. But with tools and strategies, you can facilitate these conversations effectively.

This facilitation guide will help you facilitate conversations on an variety of topics with both small and large groups. You’ll learn how to prepare for an array of responses and situations.

This guide is your game plan.

The beauty of having this game plan is that you don’t have to be an expert in the topic of the discussion you’re facilitating, you just have to be a strong facilitator. This guide will help you gain the skills you need to do just that.

What you’ll get:

  • Five modules of content, covering what you need to know before, during, and after facilitating
  • Companion workbook with additional information and guided reflection questions for each lesson

The N-Word Workshop

  • The N-Work Video Workshop
  • Supplemental Worksheets & Guided Questions

Creating Engaging and Effective Job Descriptions

Jen and Katrina Kibben of Three Ears Media help you take your generic, bland job descriptions and turn them into a dynamic tool for recruiting the diverse applicant pool you want. Applicants want to see how they connect to the job before they apply. They want to get a real sense of the job and what is required to succeed. If you want to stand out, you need to help people envision themselves in the job. Using the same job descriptions from 10 years ago isn’t going to cut it. 

Katrina talks you through their formula for creating a stand-out job description that will help you diversify your applicant pools and recruit staff who are excited about the position. By the end of the workshop, you’ll know what you need to change, what you need to add, and how to write so you find people whose skills are aligned with your needs. You will leave this workshop understanding how to immediately implement what you learned and write job descriptions that are more equitable and accessible.

What you’ll get:

  • Job Description Workshop with Jen and Katrina
  • Katrina’s Job Re-write Workbook
