January 26, 2021 - March 30, 2021, 10am - 12pm
Small Towns

Cost: Free

When: Tuesdays, Jan. 26, Feb. 23, and March 30, 10 a.m. to noon

Where: Online

About: Join us for this training to learn how to deepen conversations, storytelling and story-listening, putting differences on the table, and folding in conversation across differences in community gatherings. There will be three training sessions, each focusing in a specific community.

Using the Civity Method, we explore engaging in deeper conversation across difference with empathy, respect, and civility. Transitioning from an ‘us and them’ mindset to an inclusive ‘us’ mindset. When people have the sense that we are in this together—when they feel confident reaching out to and connecting with others—differences become springboards rather than barriers. This event will be open to all but we will be focusing on the following areas on these dates:

Nebraska City area: Tuesday, Jan. 26, from 10 a.m. to noon. Register here.
Hastings area: Tuesday, Feb. 23, from 10 a.m. to noon. Register here.
Fremont area: Tuesday, March 30, from 10 a.m. to noon. Register here.

Registration (required by noon the day before of each training)
