Best Practices for a Wider Welcome
Saturday November 25th – 2:00-4:00 PM
This workshop is for EVERYONE who seeks to develop cultural competence and skill in their roles as ambassadors of the UU faith and this UU community. That means greeters, ushers, hospitality volunteers, committee members, leaders, and really, anyone who engages with first-time and return visitors to the church.
The workshop’s purpose and goal is to learn how to interact across differences that exist on the spectrums of race, disability, age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, class and beliefs, in a way that deepens relationships and creates an inviting congregational culture of belonging. The emphasis will be on practical and common sense tools and practices.
Hosted by the AIM team, we are pleased that Rev. Ren McFadyen (they/them) will be in Winnipeg to facilitate this congregational engagement. Rev. Ren is a UU minister whose community work is consulting with governments and NGOs to evaluate and inform change management plans as relate to diversity, inclusion, access and equity.
This event will take place in the Sanctuary.To register please email Paula Keirstead at pmkeirstead54(at)gmail.com.
