ToP Network Professional Development Workshops

Building on the energy and spirit from our 2021 and 2022 virtual Annual Gatherings, the ToP Network is hosting monthly workshops to continue supporting the development of our ToP Community. Join us to connect live with other facilitators from across the globe and to learn how to expand your use of the ToP methods. The registration fees will be donated to the ToP Network Scholarship Fund. The scholarship was created to assist with Gathering registration costs for individuals who demonstrate strong investment in the future of ToP methods.  We value diverse experiences that contribute to the body of knowledge that helps us all improve our understanding and ToP practice.

Session Description: In this session, participants will have the opportunity to learn and share frameworks and examples of organizational policies and practices that push organizations from being in “learning mode” to “action mode” in their anti-racist efforts. Topics we will explore include compensation, funding, evaluation, hiring, and human resource policies. We will also consider what our role as facilitators is within these efforts.

Presenters:
● Seva Gandhi, Founder of Collaborative Connections, CTF & Mentor Trainer
● Eva Jo Meyers, Author of Raise the Room, Co-Founder of Spark Decks & Consultant

Competencies:
● 5.0 Model Positive Professional Attitude
○ 5.3 Practice Self-Assessment and Self-Awareness
○ 5.4 Act with Integrity
○ 5.5 Model Content Neutrality
● 6.0 Orchestrate quality events

Aims: To collectively explore and reflect where DEI + Antiracism work that was heavily centered in the past two years has brought us, and to consider what we notice is working, and what is not working, what is the next step in supporting organizations, and what is our role.
