“Social Equity Foundations” (”Grundlagen der sozialen Gerechtigkeit”) ist eine neue Lernreihe der aequa-Gemeinschaft, in der Mitglieder des aequa Workshops Collective interaktive Online-Treffen zu Themen wie soziale Gerechtigkeit, Intersektionalität, empfindlich Kommunikation, gleichberechtigtes Organisieren und Peer Empowerment leiten werden.

Conscious Communication: Exploring allyship tools for equity and inclusion through conversation

This is the third workshop in “Social Equity Foundations,” a community learning series in which members of the aequa Workshops Collective will lead interactive online meetups on topics like social equity, intersectionality, conscious communication, equitable organising and peer empowerment.

In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore allyship tools for engaging mindfully with collaborators to build a more inclusive spaces. We’ll learn some frameworks for more effective and empathic interpersonal communication, especially when harm has already happened — whether you are showing up for yourself, for someone else, or if you are the person who caused harm.

Key topics of conversation:
– impact versus intent
– impacts of microaggressions
– speaking up for yourself
– active allyship – showing up for others
– when harm happens – how to apologise

If you are new to these topics yourself or you are someone who is trying to get better at talking about these topics more courageously with friends, family, colleagues and collaborators, then this workshop is for you!

These workshops are offered on a sliding-scale basis from zero to €20. You will receive payment info along with the link to the video conference after registering.

For the moment, these workshops will be led in English. Are you interested in hosting or participating in similar workshops in German or another language? Get in touch with hello@aequa.cc and let’s chat about it!
