Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is teaming up with dialogue consultants, Essential Partners, to offer members of the Pittsburgh community the opportunity to attend a free virtual training to facilitate dialogue on May 25 & 26, 2021 from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Sign up for this two-day training by May 10.
Essential Partners‘ unique approach - Reflective Structured Dialogue (RSD) - was created 32 years ago in Cambridge, MA. Highly adaptable to local needs and culture, RSD is now in use on some of the most divisive issues across the US and in over 25 countries around the world. This training is geared toward those who lead or influence groups of people and want to learn how to hold space for tough conversations in daily life, in your community, at your workplace or during formal dialogues. We hope you will consider applying or pass along to colleagues who may benefit from this opportunity.
