Join us for the Welcome Table series facilitated by the Alluvial Collective, focusing on community building, dialogue, and experiential learning about race and equity. This engaging, participatory approach uses deep listening, storytelling, and relationship building as prerequisites to creating more inclusive and equitable communities and work dynamics. The process helps us learn more about issues of equity and inclusion, and more deeply investigate the consequences of inherited systems and structural inequities without personal shaming or blaming. Past participants have described it as a valuable, empowering experience. Because each session builds on the previous one, you're encouraged to attend the entire series.
The series consists of 5 sessions that build upon one another, starting with deeper relationship- and trust-building, moving to learning sessions, and often concluding with the group’s recommendations for their own organization.
In a society that has become more and more polarized, it’s imperative that we find ways of to better connect with others both professionally and personally, to practice better communication through deep listening and learning, and to create spaces that are more welcoming and inclusive of all in our nation.
Participation is open to all UMMC staff, faculty, trainees and enrolled students with a strong interest in leading others, building intellectual capacity, and creating long-lasting partnerships with authenticity in mind and at the forefront of their work.
The dates for the upcoming series are currently being determined. Interested participants should submit the interest form below.
At the conclusion the conclusion of the series, each participant will be awarded a certificate of completion and will receive the customized “Transformational Leader” lapel pin.
