2019 Community Engaged Practitioners’ Retreat
June 12 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm$65
Identity, Social Justice and Privilege: A Courageous Conversation
CCMA invites you to be part of the celebration by renewing our collective commitment to service-learning and civic engagement. Join us for a day of learning about difficult conversations, managing triggers, and privilege. Exploration of our identities is essential to our growth as individuals, our relationships with others, and our ability to co-create a socially just and equitable society. Retreat participants will explore our varied identities, unpack the ways we have been socialized in our identities, and examine how our identity and social positioning impacts our work on campuses, with our students, and with our communities. Participants will gain deeper self-understanding and tools to lead others in honest conversations about equity and diversity which are essential to transformative personal and community change work.
This year’s Practitioners’ Retreat will also feature networking roundtables where you can bring questions as well as answers on a variety of timely topics. The retreat will be led by Ms. Chianti Blackmon, Director of Multicultural Student Services at Frederick Community College and Co-Chair of the Washington Regional TaskForce Against Campus Prejudice.
The Practitioners’ Retreat outcomes are:
1) Equip faculty and staff to lead difficult conversations.
2) Enhance skills to address privilege across difference.
3) Dialogue how community engagement intersects with skill development around cultural competency.
