At CCRDA, we believe it is important to learn from each other regularly as we are community of Christ-centred organizations who desire to share skills, knowledge and support one another. In order to facilitate this mutual learning relationship, in May 2017, we introduced our first series of monthly webinars which feature one of our members or an expert in a relevant field on a topic of their expertise. All our webinars are FREE for members and cost $15 for non-members. Click here to register.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Decolonization in a Biblical Context
October 14, 2021 at 1:00pm EST/10:00am PST
Bernadette Arthur, Co-Culture Collective
The last couple years has seen an insurgence in discussions related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and decolonization, but how do these ideas align with the biblical concepts of shalom and justice?
In this workshop, we will discuss what these terms mean within a Christian para-church organizational context. We will also identify typical organizational barriers to, and concerns about, addressing these topics. Finally, we will discuss what practical steps can be taken and questions an organization can ask themselves as they begin to explore these issues.
From Silos to Systems Thinking
November 16, 2021 at 1:00pm EST/10:00am PST
Chris Bosch, Chisel Consulting
Are you frustrated with the siloed nature of your organization? Do you wonder why, no matter how effective your team is, the same challenges persist? There is a good chance you need to adopt a systems thinking mindset.
We belong to and participate in a system. When one part of the system changes (or doesn’t change) it impacts the rest of the system. Learn about how to apply systems thinking and begin tackling the root causes of your challenges.
These webinars are FREE for members and $15 for non-members.
