Diversity, Gender Visibility and the Power of Inclusion: creating space for all people to come as they are with Jessie Nelson

Within this interactive workshop, participants will be invited to explore group activities that create big, insightful conversation and major thought provocation. This workshop is designed to integrate thoughtful breakout groups that allow for participant discussion and thought exchange as a way to get into the real conversation and start to engage in this work from an introspective lens that allows for eventual extrospection. Topics we will explore include: privilege, inclusion, unconscious bias and being an accomplice.

Yoga Outreach is piloting a sliding scale for fees for this workshop.

There are a limited amount of slots for classes offered at the middle and lower end of the scale. Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the higher ticket prices, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility. Being honest with yourself and your financial situation when engaging with sliding scale practices grows strong and sustainable communities. *Adapted from wortsandcunning.com/blog/sliding-scale
