D4D on the Road workshop
On Saturday, January 29th 10AM to 5PM in the Great Hall, Carleton will be hosting the Debating for Democracy on the Road Conference. “D4D on the Road” is a 6-hour training workshop sponsored by Project Pericles that can help leaders and activists discover the power of using stories and shared values to mobilize support, persuasively communicate, and motivate people to act.
The workshop is open to all attendees, although an RSVP on this website by Wednesday, January 26th is required. Academic Civic Engagement is hosting the event, and students from ACE and ACT will be participating in the workshop. In addition to students, faculty, and staff from Carleton, a diverse selection of local high school and community leaders has been invited. A delegation of students from St. Olaf and Macalester will also be attending.
The session will be broken up by breaks, and attendees will have the chance to network and share leadership experiences as part of the training. Lunch will be provided in the Great Hall.
Mandara Meyers, Director of Leadership Development at the Center for Progressive Leadership (CPL), will host the session. Mandara has built CPL’s national network of trainers and consultants, and developed standardized curriculum now used to train over 500 leaders around the country each year. Over the past decade, she has worked with and consulted for the Women’s Law Project, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Empowerment Group, the Management Center, Genocide Intervention Network, and the Pennsylvania Immigration Resource Center.
