Understanding, Increasing, and Impacting Diversity in
Conservation Organizations
The Greater Dayton Partners for the Environment and the Institute for Conservation Leadership (ICL) are excited to offer a three-session series of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ) training for organizations that focus on conservation and environmental issues.

Reservations are required as space is limited. All sessions will be hosted via the ZOOM platform.

This training is offered FREE for our members thanks to funding to ICL from the Gund Foundation. The non-member fee is $35.

All attendees will receive a companion book, “The Intersectional Environmentalist: How to Dismantle Systems of Oppression to Protect People + Planet.
The Institute for Conservation Leadership are meeting designers who specialize in partipatory gatherings designed to facilitate interaction, generate ideas, uncover points of agreement and disagreement, and help groups collaborate effectively. ICL has tremendous experience with facilitating human interactions. They will bring this experience to this training series, and share processes and practice skills designed to foster participatory meetings and help combat the implicit and explicit biases that can limit the creation of inclusive spaces. 

Session 1: Combating Implicit Bias
November 9, 2022, 11:00 AM-12:30 PM

During this foundational session, we will introduce and explore the concept of implicit biases and how they impact efforts to create inclusive spaces. We will then discuss how we might combat common biases through building active listening skills and will conclude by identifying opportunities to practice these new skills. 

Session 2: Using Meeting Ground Rules to Create Equitable Spaces
December 9, 2022, 11:00 AM-12:30 PM

When gathering a new and diverse set of stakeholders, difference and bias can make finding common ground difficult. In this session, we will explore some specific biases when undermining efforts to develop and increase diversity in partnerships. We will then explore the use of ground rules to help facilitate more equitable and diverse spaces. As facilitator Priya Parker stastes about ground rules for gathering "In diverse societies, pop-up rules carry special force. They allow us to gather across difference, to connect, to make meaning together, without having to be the same." We will end by creating ground rules for our third and final session. 

Session 3: DEIJ Lessons from Dayton
January 9, 2023, 11:00 AM-12:30 PM 

DEIJ efforts are supported by a foundation of on-going learning and reflection. To that end, this third and final session will focus on surfacing the knowledge and experience of local partners. We will highlight 1-2 local efforts and then facilitate time for peer sharing and learning among meeting attendees. Come prepared to share experiences and build new relationships.
