WINTER 2017: Tuesday, Dec. 6
Theme: Culturally inclusive facilitation
The Nonprofit Association of Oregon (NAO) will put on a workshop about facilitating collaborative projects and meetings in a way that is sensitive to cultural differences. Different cultures approach social and business relationships in different ways. This workshop will improve understanding of those differences, help you encourage more participation, be more inclusive, build stronger relationships and get better outcomes.
Lunch this quarter will be catered by Mauritian food cart Chez Dodo, and we're looking forward to the very special treat. Please RSVP by Friday, Dec. 2.

Word-class storyteller Will Hornyak will lead a workshop about furthering organizational and project success through the art of spinning a whopping good tale. It's guaranteed to be a lively and fun time.
From Irish folktales and Native American legends to Russian fairytales, Greek myths and original material, Will weaves a wide web of oral traditions into engaging performances, workshops and classes. He teaches storytelling in professional communication at Marylhurst University and assists corporate and non-profit organizations in telling the stories that reflect their values, vision and mission. Will has worked with the Portland based nonprofit Open Hearts Open Minds to integrate dialogue groups, storytelling and theatre into Oregon penitentiaries. A Young Audiences roster artist since 1997, Will was recently selected to perform at the National Storytelling Festival in October of 2016.
