Are you looking to engage your board or staff in some critical conversations? To work with community and other stakeholders as part of a planning process? JVA’s team has the meeting facilitation expertise to make sure you come away with answers that lead to an actionable plan.
Fun and inclusive meetings
You may be dealing with a diverse group of individuals who approach your organization’s decisions from very different perspectives. Never fear. JVA’s seasoned facilitators will work with you to design a process that is culturally responsive and allows all voices to be heard in a respectful manner. We have extensive experience in making meetings both fun and inclusive. And we have staff with decades of experience specializing in addressing issues of equity and inclusion while working with diverse communities—as well as Spanish-speaking and bicultural staff.
The benefits of active participation
JVA is well versed in a wide array of methods so that we can customize a terrific meeting, or series of them, for you. We have designed activities that encourage active participation by everyone, and they include individual, small-group and large-group exercises. When you manage to engage every member of your group, you accomplish several things. First, your meeting participants know that you value their opinions. Second, you ensure that no good ideas are unspoken because someone feels intimidated. And third, you promote group members’ investment in the organization’s path forward.
A community is served best when it plays a part in the effort. JVA-facilitated meetings can help make sure that the direction your program, your organization or a broader initiative takes makes sense for those it serves and then continues to resonate.
JVA would love to facilitate your next meeting. Give us a call to find out more about what we can accomplish together!
