Type of Organisation: NGO
A one-day workshop for teachers and other frontline public-sector workers. Holding Difficult Conversations equips beneficiaries with the skills and confidence needed to understand and challenge prejudiced or discriminatory attitudes and behaviours, and to hold difficult conversations on hot-button issues relating to identity, belonging, values and group membership. The programme aims to equip practitioners to open up dialogue rather than shut down dissent.
Workshops are run for a minimum of 12 people, and a maximum of 30 (with a preference for 20 beneficiaries) recruited from multiple educational or other public institutions.
Primary, secondary and tertiary teachers, community workers, youth workers, parole officers and other frontline public sector professionals are all part of the target audience.
One-day or half-day workshops
