FORMAL FACILITATED COURSE COHORTS
Learn the Tauiwi Tautoko approach to challenging racism in everyday conversations, with the support and structure of a facilitated course led by experienced trainers. We run two formal cohorts per year on average, beginning in the autumn and spring.
Together with participants across te motu, you will be guided on a 10-week journey, learning and practicing with others. There is strength in community, and in structure: this formal course makes it easier to learn more deeply and sustain your focus and energy.
Cohorts commence with an introductory in-person all-day hui, where we build relationships (whakawhanaungatanga) and begin to practice the Tauiwi Tautoko approach in real-time conversations.
We generally hold in-person hui for cohorts in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington, and Ōtautahi Christchurch, as well as an online option for those farther afield. We can also add additional hui if a sizeable community in another city joins.
We then meet online for nine weekly webinars, where we check in, discuss the learning resources, and practice applying new skills. Throughout, volunteers and facilitators from the Tauiwi Tautoko community support this learning by suggesting places to intervene online, and observe and reflect on the group's interventions to help participants hone their approach.
We end with a half-day hui, again in person, to debrief together about the work we've done and things we've learned, and affirm ongoing relationships and commitments that continue in the Tauiwi Tautoko community beyond the course.
Registrations for the next cohort are not yet open. If you'd like to be informed when you can sign up, please let us know.
