Community and Culture: A Reflective Learning Event and Part of the Best Part of Me Retreat Series
This retreat series includes four experiential workshops; each workshop focuses on exploring our work in human services, what our contributions are, and what we get from the opportunity to serve others. All jobs that support people are important, be they in direct service or of an administrative nature providing essential support to the people doing hands on work. Additionally, each of us is at a different place in our commitment to the work that we do. This workshop series can help to define and reaffirm that commitment.
Community and Culture provides a forum for addressing assumptions and attitudes around the work we do. What is our role in society’s evolving understanding of difference between people, their abilities, and contributions? What effect can we have on future generations? How do our own backgrounds, cultures, community groups, and social influences impact what we uniquely bring to the work?
The format, location, and time frames for this event will be determined based on more up-to-date circumstances and safety precautions regarding the pandemic.
