Dian Killian–NVC trainer, coach, and author–will be co-facilitating the following sessions at the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation’s Bridging our Divides 2016 Conference:

Friday,  Oct. 14th, 3pm-4:30pm: “Race, Violence, & Policing in America” (in the Wayland Room)

What role will NCDD members play in resolving issues related to slavery, racism & police brutality in the U.S? In this interactive session, we will review together what’s currently in motion nationally around peace & reconciliation, how NCDD members can contribute, & start working together on what a national process might look like-in terms of structure, implementation and impact. How can NCDD collaborate with other organizations to create a national peace & reconciliation process in the US and how might those experienced with similar processes in Africa be involved & of support?

Saturday, Oct. 15th, 9am-10:30am, “Can-Do Consensus Decision-Making” (in the Wayland Room)

Consensus and group decision-making can get a bad rap—as messy, ineffective, or inefficient. In this workshop, learn practical skills based on Nonviolent Communication practices to take your group facilitation to the next level! We will explore how compromise (and majority decision making) actually often misses the mark. And how through skillful facilitation and group decision making (with some very tangible tools), greater connection, understanding and movement forward can get clear results.

The Conference runs Oct. 14th-16th in Framingham, MA:
