People of Color Caucus
Convener: Cathy Royal
Saturday October 5, 2013
9:00am - 4:00pm

People of Color and First Peoples are invited to attend a caucus meeting all day Saturday, October 5th on the topic "Continuing the Legacy”. The caucus will address the importance of the presence of People of Color and First People in the OD community. The history of the caucus will be a focus of the session with an emphasis on what should the caucus focus on going forward.


A discussion of our history as a group will be covered as well as practitioner best practices for change and justice, and the importance of voice and presence in the tapestry of the global community. Elena Feliz an Arnold Minor have compiled a brief history of the caucus beginning with the work of Fred Miller and others. We invite you to come and add your voice to the journey as we work for justice an voice in the 21st century.


 

Men in OD Affinity Group
Convener: John Vogelsang
Sunday October 6, 2013

We welcome all men to this session.  We typically open with a reading to set the tone and then invite the participants to talk about what’s uppermost on their minds and hearts, exploring the unique challenges and dynamics of being men in today's world.  Gender dynamics, power, father-son relationships, competency, age, and health are among the topics that we've covered over the years, and that may well come up again this year.  Join us and create the conversation that matters to you. For information, contact John Vogelsang at jvogelsang@earthlink.net.

What do women do when they get together?  They usually change the world!  Let's bring back the tradition in ODN of women gathering to reflect, connect, tell our stories and laugh.  We share our hope, our strength, our knowledge and experience to make a difference in the world and our lives.  This connection gives us energy and support.  Join us for one hour to begin the conference off in the right way - creating and renewing our precious relationships with each other.
