On March 1st, join us to discuss bystander responses to Islamophobia.
Say Salaam: Bystander Responses to Islamophobia
CoRe is partnering with the National Council of Canadian Muslims on “Say Salaam”, a project to develop training on responding to Islamophobia. CoRe is piloting this training for a number of groups in the next few months. For our first pilot event, we invite you to join us in exploring the role of bystanders in responding to Islamophobia. We will examine scenarios of harassment, racist speech, and even potential violence. What can bystanders do to improve the situation in the moment? What more might be done to bring about longer term results?
Bring your conflict resolution skills, experiences and questions to our March 1st session and help create resources for supporting communities and individuals experiencing attacks based on identity!
LOCATION: KPMG, 777 Dunsmuir Street, 4th floor.
TIME: 4:30-6:00 p.m.
RSVP to email@example.com. Livestream will be available.
And join us on March 14th for
Conflict Styles and Collaborative Games
Join Amanda Semenoff and Deborah White in an exploration of the potential of collaborative games to elicit and support dialogue on conflict styles and their impact in negotiations, mediations, and day-to-day communications. Amanda will introduce a quick-to-learn, quick-to-play collaborative game created by mediators and other conflict resolution professionals and guide a discussion of the ways in which collaborative games surface conflict style preferences amongst players. Using the five conflict handling modes of the Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument as a vocabulary for analysis, participants will explore the ways in which approaches to problem solving and cooperation in games correlates to conflict handling modes in other circumstances. What can we learn from exploring our conflict styles in a non-conflictual setting? What applications are possible to our conflict management practices?
