    Creating Workplaces Where Women Can Thrive 

    October 22nd, 12:00 - 1:00 pm @ St. Louis MHB

    Across the board, women are paid less than men, assume most low wage jobs, and are promoted at a slower pace. These factors exacerbate social and economic inequity in our region. This month we are joined by Lisa Weingarth, Executive Director of the Women's Foundation of Greater St. Louis (WFSTL).  Come learn about the WFSTL's new strategic plan and initiatives to address the barriers to economic success for women through workplace, individual and policy change.

    Prior to our conversation, please read this fact sheet on A Woman-Centered Economic Agenda created by the Institute for Women's Policy Research.

    EPIP LA | Practice Makes Presence: Facilitation Skills Training Workshop

    Are you an EPIP member? Log in and go here to purchase discounted tickets.

    Skillful collaboration is facilitated by an open mind and heart, keen powers of observation of self and others, compassionate communication, a whole-systems view and a willingness to witness and experience transformation. This workshop will promote these qualities while seeking to enhance leadership skills, self-awareness and a capacity to contribute to positive change at any scale. Participants will be introduced to a variety of facilitation skills and tools through both presentation and hands-on exercises. We will explore facilitative approaches to implicit bias, transgressions and managing difficult conversations related to diversity, inclusion and equity. We will also make space to discuss ways that we can intervene as participants and facilitators when our meetings’ dynamics mirror the racism or other forms of oppression found in the greater society.

    By practicing presence, expanding our awareness of self and others and unlocking our creativity, we can realize our potential as inspired and skillful facilitators.

    Participants can expect to:
    (1) Explore and better understand the role of a facilitator and core facilitative practices;
    (2) Learn to imaginatively embrace emergence in unpredictable meetings;
    (3) Learn about compassionate communication skills, group culture and ground rules;
    (4) Be introduced to a practical and comprehensive facilitator’s tool box; and
    (5) Learn strategies to address hurtful transgressions in group work.

    The workshop will be facilitated by Adam Wolpert. Adam is a facilitator, educator and fine artist. He leads workshops in group process and has worked as a facilitator with many institutes, communities, organizations and foundations since 1994. In the last 15 years, he has designed and led multiple workshops and trainings in creative collaborative leadership and systems thinking as it relates to group work. Adam has also taught workshops in building and sustaining community and has lived in an intentional community for over 25 years. Adam is a co-founder of OAEC (www.oaec.org) an organization that focuses on cultivating ecological literacy and building the capacity of civic and social movement leaders and organizations to guide their communities toward an ecologically regenerative, economically viable, and socially just future.

    Breakfast and networking will begin at 9:00 a.m. Workshop will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will run for four (4) hours until 1:30 p.m., including a working lunch.

    When arranging your schedule, please note that November 5 is Election Day.

    Equity Storytelling: Sharing Equity in Practice

    We can all agree that the new "buzzword" in the field of philanthropy is equity. But how we apply the principles of equity to our work can sometimes be a challenge.

    EPIP members will tell the stories of partnerships and projects that successfully embedded equity principles into their work. We will learn about how they took the first step to shifting their work and the successes and challenges they faced along the way.

    As we embed principles of equity in our work, it is important that it shows up in all areas, both internally and externally. Communications and marketing teams are often responsible for developing the road map. Learn more about how these tools can be applied in communications and beyond to move your work forward.
