Pearson Seminar On
What does it mean to lead together?
Pearson Seminar on Collaborative Leadership (PSCL) is a brand new program launching June 2018 and we want you to join us!
This experiential program grew out of the Pearson Seminar of Youth Leadership (PSYL) and is open to people 18+ interested in mobilizing toward social change who have experience in community organizing, anti-oppressive work, experience that is grounded in social justice, or have participated in experiential programs such as/ or similar to PSYL, and the United World Colleges (UWC).
This program came together knowing that as we work to make change in the world; developing skills, learning, growing, and asking questions; we often reach times where we find ourselves needing to recharge, where we are at a moment of change (but where to go?), or are feeling stuck or isolated. We may be excited to share our passions and connect with other changemakers. Maybe we want to collaborate with new people!
PSCL invites you to come dive into some of your questions, deepen your skills and knowledge, and practice what it means to be a leader hands-on.
Some questions to explore:
Why lead together?
What personal skills do we need to lead together?
How do we foster trust, creativity, and compromise with others?
What does inclusive leadership look like?
How do we have difficult conversations with people we may not agree with?
How can I run a program or build a community like at PSYL or a UWC?
Our focus is leadership, social justice, environmental justice, and personal growth. Essentially the issues that are impacting our world, how we relate to them, and how they affect us. We’re committed to making this program collaborative and responsive to your needs, before and during the program. We’ll be a small group (less than 20 participants) - which creates more opportunities to focus on what we need (individually and as a group) to move us forward.
There will be at least 2 optional pre-program Skype calls for all participants to discuss your hopes, dreams, and needs for the program and make some program-related decisions together. During the program, we will be responsive to needs and requests, co-creating a program that supports our whole community. Register before April 15th to join our first program call!
Excited, intrigued, and/or curious about this new program or register now? Full details are below.
We can’t wait to build this program and #leadtogether with you!
