This workshop is an extended version based on a Women of Color Luncheon that I led and facilitated at the OCADSV Conference when I was the Women of Color Advocate many moons ago. At the previous luncheon we were able to connect and share our experiences, but there was no immediate follow-up or continued effort to engage the WOC community - both within agencies and personally.
Participants will be led through individual and small-group exercises to draw out and share their experiences. These activities will then culminate in facilitator-directed journaling and art therapy activities. The goal is for participants to leave with specific tools for support and ongoing connection with other WOC colleagues.
As well, we will continue (from our 2017 sessions) discussing how to engage other WOC in our home agencies into these ongoing systems of support.
The workshop will be conducted via: Facilitated small-group and i
This can be created as a WOC-only space in continuation of our 2017 Conference gatherings, if suggested/requested by Conference leadership
