Seeding Civity Training

Tuesday, May 29, 2018

Civity training enables community leaders to leverage their passions and visions in their professional and personal lives through strategic relationship-building with people who are different.

Cost: Free!

When: Tuesday, May 29, noon to 2 p.m.

Where: The Lark, 809 W 2nd St, Hastings, NE 68901-5004, United States

About: Leaders map their own individual networks and situate themselves as both insiders and outsiders. They learn and practice reaching out to people who are different from themselves, taking the risk of telling their own story, and creating the listening space to invite and truly hear the stories others have to share. They also discover the power of small “wise interventions” to make everyday interactions count.

This free civity training on Tuesday, May 29 will be lead by Malka Kopell and Palma Strand who co-founded Civity after a series of conversations about citizens, civic engagement, government, and public challenges that began informally almost a decade ago.

Kopell is an independent consultant to philanthropy, nonprofits and governments. She brings to Civity over 30 years of experience with collaborative, cross-sector governance and civic engagement, and has worked on a variety of issues, including neighborhood revitalization, water and air quality, transportation, youth development, and public health.

Registration: Please RSVP by May 26 with Jordan Feyerherm, Center for Rural Affairs, at for attendance and lunch count. (Subway will be provided for lunch, good will donations are appreciated.)
