Relationships & Social Change: Holding the tension between ideals and reality

Join the Inner Activist for a special evening event in Vancouver Monday April 13, 2015.

April 13, 2015 at 6:30pm - 8pm

Effective social change work hinges on our ability to build, sustain and nurture relationships. But how do we hold the tension between the ideals of social change and the realities of marginalization and systemic oppression with greater ease, integrity and joy for all? Join Inner Activist instructors Ian Curtin and Camille Dumond and alumni Lesley Anderson for this special evening event.

  • Explore why building relationships is an integral part of social change work.
  • Be introduced to a new model for navigating and transforming the most common relationship pitfalls.
  • Get a taste of the kinds of tools and experiences we offer at Building Strong and Respectful Relationships (May 30 - June 3, 2015) to support your ability to build impactful relationships and take your change work to new heights.
  • Meet other change makers from across the Lower Mainland.
  • Hear stories from a past participant about their experience of the course and how it assisted them as a changemaker and leader.
