Part of building multi-ethnic, multi-racial and multi-cultural power requires that those who are most invisible be seen, heard, understood, trained, resourced and in positions to make decisions and drive change. There are many formal and informal ways in which individuals, families and communities are recognized, empowered and activated to participate in civic life. This session will create space for representatives from various training and leadership development programs to discuss different values, approaches and outcomes of their particular programs and will invite participants to share reflections and present opportunities for future collaborative action.
