    COMMUNCATIONS AND INVOLVEMENT DURING CRISIS

    The PI Network is October 21 at 4 p.m. Pacific.

    Followed by a social hour at 5 p.m.

    Portland Public Schools, as well as most other school districts in the country faced tough decisions when COVID 19 began to infect communities throughout the US.    Michelle DePass joins us for our next virtual PI Network to discuss communications and involvement during COVID and other crisis. Michelle, a former Cascade Chapter Board member and a recently elected board member for Portland Public Schools, will talk about the school district’s rapid responses to the COVID 19 pandemic during the 2019 and 2020 school years.  She will discuss the information that went into cancelling the last several months of school last year and restarting this year with not only a pandemic, but also ongoing protests in the city and wildfires on top of it. 

    Free for IAP2 members, and $10 for non-members.

    **You must be logged in to have access to the member rate. **

    Fee to non-members supports P2 microgrants. Free to students, non-profits and by need (honor system to all): use code 3S023ECC

     

    Presenter: Michelle DePass

    Michelle is a Portlander born within walking distance of where she currently lives. A long-time IAP2 Cascade Chapter board member, she was recently elected to serve on the Portland Public School Board for a four-year term starting in July 2019.

    She attended elementary school in Caracas, Guadalajara and Washington DC before returning to Portland to attend high school at Jefferson and graduating from the Metropolitan Learning Center lovingly called "camp run amok" by her mother.

    She is the single mother of two boys ages 18 and 21, both Benson High School graduates. She got them to school late exactly once, and, and has cooked twice a day for their entire school careers.  She does not watch television, has above average parallel parking skills, loves to cook and knit, and was just starting to read again for pleasure before her board duties kicked in.

    She is passionate about education and children, fashion, architecture, cities, transportation, housing and addressing generational poverty.

    Facilitation skills are essential for public engagement professionals. Masterful facilitation involves more than group process techniques and strong meeting design – it also requires anticipation skills and adaptability. This highly interactive, fun-filled session strengthens participants' ability to trust their intuition, think on their feet and deal with unpredictable situations. When a facilitated session goes off the rails (and it will), you need to tap into a different skillset to bring things back on track quickly. Neurological evidence, real-life experience and useful improv tools will equip you to become more nimble and confident from the front of the room. No comedy skills required!.

    • Increased confidence in their ability to adapt to changing circumstances, even from the front of the room;
    • An up-to-date resource list of links, titles and people that will allow participants to explore agility in facilitation more deeply if interested; and
    • A memorable experience shared with new people in their expanded professional network.

    Many of us spend a lot of time talking (and listening too!). We support organizations facing big challenges and issues, often with significant controversy, through the use of engagement, dialogue and discussion. But rarely do we stop and take stock on how the quality of our conversations correlates to the quality of our decisions, our choices and relationships. Too often, it’s hard to be in a real, authentic, supportive conversation: our organizations (and let’s be honest, sometimes ourselves) avoid the conversation completely, hoping the problem will simply go away.  Alternately, we enter into “reactive conversations” rather than “creative conversations.  It’s not surprising as three themes tend to dominate our public conversations.  You’ll notice that:

    • People spend a lot of time talking at one another, rather than with each other.

    • It is tough to escape yes or no.

    • Most of the tools we use to communicate are pushing us away from having real conversations...and thus deep connection…which everyone is hungering for.

    The three centres for dialogue

    So, in service of giving awareness and structure to “creative conversations,” -- those that craft deeper connections -- we need to explore and unpack the three centers for real dialogue – our head, our heart and our gut. Each center provides a unique conversation motivation, intention, experience. When we raise the consciousness of who’s talking most– your head, heart or gut – our chances go way up to create truly meaningful conversations and subsequently desired outcomes.

    Your Trainer: Kim Hyshka

    Join me for this taster of upping our conversation game and remember, ‘anything is possible with a little dialogue.’

    Learning objectives:

    • Understanding of 3 key road blocks to meaningful and “creative” conversations (ie. what triggers reactive conversations)

    • Looking internally on what it takes to convene better, more connected conversations through the 3 centres of dialogue

    • Expand the theory concepts and apply to your own large scale, high stakes, public participation scenarios

    Advanced Equity is only for those who have taken Foundations in Equity.

    This is a more in-depth session on racial equity, and is less content driven than the Foundations session. It utilizes the content knowledge of Foundations to address participants discussing their own equity work, its challenges and opportunities. Intersectionality will also be discussed in greater degree than in Foundations, and a scenario will be used for a deeper understanding and application of the implementation of equity. This session will also cover microaggressions and macro-microaggressions. Foundations in Equity is a prerequisite for this course.

    Public participation practitioners understand the need to involve others in decision-making. It builds connections, increases buy-in and reduces blind spots. But too often, once that input has been given, it enters a “black box” of mystery and, seemingly magically, out pops a decision that may appear to bear little resemblance to the advice received. This workshop will help participants plan and facilitate effective group collaboration by being explicit about how decisions will be made, by whom, and based on what considerations, before actually making them. Learn tips and techniques for designing and leading collective decision-making processes that are not only more transparent and defensible, but ultimately quicker and wiser too.

    The concept of workforce Diversity is no longer an abstraction; it is part of everyday life. But how much do we actually understand about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)? In today’s environment of a heightened focus on racial disparities, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the workforce, organizations seek to better understand how to effectively advance DEI initiatives within the organization. This course is geared for those who seek a fundamental understanding of DEI. It will provide a fundamental understanding of DEI Concepts and address the following: Why DEI is important in the workplace and in social investment. Know the true value of DEI in the workplace. This course will provide an understanding of the terminology, insights into legal and compliance constructs and beyond, and insights into creating a Framework to advance DEI in the workplace. This course will also challenge individuals to explore their attitudes and perceptions about DEI and to self-identify with their DEI role within an organization using the PCIHO model (Pioneer, Champion, Influencer, Hesitater, Obstructer).
