A free Conversation Project coming to Beaverton and Sherwood in February 2018
Organizations and communities are working to invite broader groups of people to engage in their work as employees, patrons, board members, and donors. But how do policies, environment, and culture support this invitation? How do they fail to support it? How do you know if a space is inclusive and accessible for all, and is such a goal even possible? Explore what it takes to make the shift from invitation to inclusion.
This is the focus of two free conversations with Rachel Bernstein in February. The community is invited to join the discussion from 5:30pm to 7pm on Monday, February 26 at the Beaverton City Library or from 8:30am to 10am on Tuesday, February 27 at the Sherwood Public Library for a special before-hours library event.
The Conversation Project is sponsored by Oregon Humanities and works to engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future. This event is being co-hosted by the Washington County Nonprofit Network and Tualatin Valley Creates.
Conversation Leader Rachel Bernstein is the partnership and training manager at Oregon Humanities. For the past decade, as a political and nonprofit professional, her work has focused on building the civic capacity and engagement of coalitions, organizations, groups, and individuals. As a Conversation Project leader, she’s looking forward to discovering what Oregonians are already doing to create inclusive communities and what questions they are still struggling with.
Oregon Humanities (921 SW Washington, Suite 150; Portland, OR 97205) connects Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities.
