The USICH is beginning to develop a federal strategic plan around homelessness and is looking to bring the voices of various stakeholders into that process using the World Cafe. This is a new way of working in the strategic planning process for USICH
Please join the conversation if you are interested in blending The World Cafe with other methods and models such as Open Space Technology, Appreciative Inquiry, Polarity Management, Spiral Dynamics, Theory U, the Enneagram and more.See More
Hi Debra. I was looking at your entry here and am quite excited about what you are doing. Are you part of the Art of Hosting community? I would think so given your bio here. If not, please talk to me about that :)
I want to invite you to a gathering I am co-hosting in Essex, MA called The Art of Humans Being. We are bringing together innovative thinkers and doers like you to explore how to be together in these transformational times. Please check out this invite on the World Cafe site http://www.theworldcafecommunity.org/events/the-art-of-humans-being Please contact me for any questions you might have. Please read the invitation and share it too if that feels right to you. I am excited to find you on this site!
My understanding is that the mentor role supports World Cafe concepts and applications. I too am learning to navigate the Portal and I am having trouble getting my photo to post! Suggest you ask Barbara Krohn and Amy Lazlo for technical support and attend an hour workshop on the on-line features of the site. Hope this is helpful.
