Today, we welcome 50 participants to the first session of the 32nd year of SEED New Leaders Week. They will spend their time immersed in a variety of SEED materials and methods in preparation for leading their own SEED seminars -- a group of individuals who meet regularly to learn about themselves, interact with each other across identities, and develop strategies for greater equity and diversity in their local settings.
SEED seeks to bring about social justice through ongoing facilitated conversations within an organization, institution, or community. When I think about how I facilitate and organize a SEED session, I have three questions in my mind: What is the issue being introduced; why is it important to me and why should it be important to anyone else; and when it has been explored, what is to be done about it?
This is why SEED is SEED, and I love being a part of our lead team.
