Meeting | Group Facilitation Services (Virtual)Conversations that center racism should be led by a professional
Without experienced facilitation, conversations in organizations or within groups that center racism can derail quickly. Inexperience hurts people. Well-meaning intent aside, without careful planning and experience in guiding racially-centered conversations, participants can be harmed. Not every consultant can do this work. These kinds of unproductive meetings make bringing people to the table the next time even more difficult — if not impossible. Creating a space where participants can be present and authentic is critically important no matter how long equity work has been underway. I always recommend hiring a professional for these kinds of meetings.
I design meetings to be engaging and interactive. My approach to meeting design and onsite work utilizes components of adult education theory. A facilitation engagement with me includes agenda planning, materials preparation, virtual facilitation, and a post-meeting follow-up plan. I end the engagement with a plan for concrete action steps because I do not believe that conversations create equity. Taking concrete action steps to mitigate racism creates equity.

How Clients Use this Service
Clients use facilitation services when the topics of racial equity, racial equality, race, and racism are included within a meeting or retreat agenda.
A typical meeting | group facilitation engagement runs from 2 hours to a half-day of meeting time. Virtually, time could be split into two sessions. Rates start at $2,700 and vary based on the length of the meeting and the depth of follow-up desired by the client.
A word about pricing: Although there is no travel associated with virtual meetings, successful sessions require just as much, if not more, planning time to produce desired results.
