New Workshop: Restorative Circles

The Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity will offer two sessions of its new one-hour workshop, Restorative Circles on November 15 and November 29,

Individuals interested in exploring the ways that restorative practices can support healthy and purposeful group/organizational discussions — especially when navigating conversations about equity, inclusion and diversity — should attend.

While engaging in a circle process, participants will explore the foundations of restorative and transformative community. The session will also include a short discussion about restorative community building. Each circle session will focus on an equity and inclusion related topic and invite participants to examine their own narratives in relationship to others.

After completion, participants will have a basic understanding of the “anatomy” of a circle process and will receive an invitation to continue exploration of restorative and transformative communities of practice.
