Learning should be accessible to all.
As a person with access to universities and colleges across the globe, it is often easy to take for granted the deep learning and for growth that can exist within our social and cultural spaces.
My journey as a facilitator began in 2012, where I was provided with the resources to lead seminars and activities for the Tri Delta new member education program. Over the course of two academic terms, I developed the necessary skills to confidently lead 20 young women through a transitional phase of their collegiate years. Truth be told, even today I find myself in a period of transition as I learn more and share many of the lessons I’ve learned with the people around me.
In early 2013, I was developing small, interactive activities for my colleagues within my academic faculty association at the University of Ottawa. These activities were crucial for the team to improve our communication styles, generate constructive feedback, and understand key challenges in volunteer recruitment, retention, and recognition. Soon after I had challenged myself in the development of the Convention programming for the University of Ottawa Greek Council. This was my first opportunity to manage a full-day educational program, coupled with leading a group of young facilitators in creating content and exchanging knowledge.
Since then, I have facilitated prefabricated programs for groups up to 60 people, and developed and presented my own educational content for groups up to 90 people.
Below is a list of programs I have developed and delivered since 2016:
- Accessible Event Planning
- Plan V: Recruiting and Retaining Volunteers
- Anti-O 101: a primer on power, privilege, and oppression
- Anti-O 102: Challenging Conversations
- Accountability and Me: Skill-building for new Board members
- Healthy Relationships
- Creative Writing through Trauma
- The Art of Storytelling
- Developing Good Policies
- “101” Level/general focus on policy creation process
