We Can Train Your Staff and Community in
COMMON GROUND THINKING
BridgeBuilders offers a combination of training workshops that can help administrators, teachers and community members appreciate and implement a Common Ground approach to society’s most divisive issues. This training has been utilized at staff retreats, for professional development, court-ordered diversity training and in parent forums.
We offer highly interactive and engaging workshops that have proven successful in helping polarized groups cultivate the common ground. These workshops come in half-day and full-day versions and will be tailored for the specific group and subject matter that will best meet your objectives.This training was originally designed for public educators and has been utilized at board and staff retreats, for professional development and in parent forums to offer school districts a fair and truly multicultural approach to dealing with their diverse constituencies. In recent years we have been asked as well to help businesses and community groups with a similar approach and have adapted versions of this training more appropriate to those environments.
For educators, we custom create the kind of workshop that will best fit the audience and needs of your district. Adaptations of the first two workshops are available for specialized audiences of school board members, administrators, health educators, science and social studies teachers or parent groups
