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 the motu, you will be guided on a 7-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.
We run the course in two cohorts: one for Tauiwi Pākehā and one for Tauiwi of the Global Majority (tauiwi of colour). While we are all connected in this work and form a broader community of Tangata Tiriti, our different experiences of racism mean differences for both learning and practice. Running two streams allows for conversations that couldn’t happen otherwise.
Cohorts commence with an introductory half- to full-day hui, where we build relationships (whakawhanaungatanga) and begin to practice the Tauiwi Tautoko approach in real-time conversations.
We then meet online for seven weekly sessions, 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 then end our seventh week with a half-day hui, 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.
