A critical challenge for social justice organizations as you advocate for positive social change is to listen deeply to the communities in which you work. Recognizing your mandate to voice the needs of the populations that you serve, your team will serve most effectively by developing the capacity to listen deeply and understand the context and history of your communities.
At Center for Council, we believe that when a staff participates in Council, an opportunity emerges for employees and peers to develop greater rapport, trust and a deeper sense of community.
Your work is so important and impactful that we are privileged to join you in building into your team to create a deeper resilience and bond as the antidote to the burnout so common is the social justice field.
We are so excited to integrate the Council practice into your organizations to create a healthier and more nurturing workplace, fostering greater cooperation, motivation and creativity that then supports innovation, increased productivity and better decision-making.
Funded in partnership by the Angell Foundation and the JIB Fund, Center for Council is excited and privileged to announce the Social Justice Council Project recipients for 2015-16:
These 20 amazing non-profits will receive training and professional development in the practice of council, to support their important work and their connections within their organizations and with their communities.
And we gratefully acknowledge the pilot cohort of this innovative project: 13 organizations that participated in our first iteration of the SJCP, in 2013-14; you can learn more about the program here.
