Leadership alumna Sarah Hood to speak about facilitation and training in Tanzania

MA Leadership alumna Sarah Hood will share some lessons learned from designing and delivering a two-day training program in support of local economic development in rural Tanzania, and how these lessons translate back into her work in Canada.

Sarah learned on the fly about design considerations for training in rural areas where facilities may lack power, basic tools/equipment, and sometimes even walls. She learned to creatively incorporate facilitation techniques that promoted the engagement of all participants, particularly important when hierarchy, bureaucracy and patriarchy prevent many from having input. She will also share how her team set the program up for ongoing success and sustainability by building clear facilitator guides, instructor toolkits, on-line resources, and building a community of local trainers.

When: April 24, 5:30-8 p.m.Where: IslandSavings Community Room, 2917 Jacklin Rd.RSVP: Register and find more information.
