Session 1 Tricks and Tools for Creating Effective Egalitarian Culture in Community CJ O’Reilly How can a community help develop and maintain a culture of equitable and empowered membership? How can we make decisions effectively as a group? No matter your governance system, from Sociocracy, to majority vote or consensus, or whatever hybrid, there are many tools and which can be applied to help empower and balance voices, participation and decision making. This presentation is an introduction to some basic principles of effective egalitarian governance and ways to inject or build that culture in community settings. The presentation will include a balance of group participation and presentation. How Conflict Leads to Consensus Martie Weatherly Welcome Conflict! How do we do that? • Listen with honor and respect • Don’t shy away from people who are ‘different’. • Discover common values. • Be curious about finding common ground. • Interactive with Q&A along the way. Relational Accessibility in Cohousing Communities Jen Ham This talk explores how cohousing communities activate a sense of interdependence which cultivates a way of living where disabled and non-disabled individuals alike co-create a system of accessibility which organically and reciprocally meets the needs of community members.
