As Just Outcomes shared in the summit – we are working towards a shared story – not an identical story, but one big enough to allow all of our differences to co-exist with one another. And “the quality of relationships among us does, and will, matter.” There will be continuing discussions over the coming months and years. It was apparent that trainers are ready to show up and have these conversations in the uplifting manner that is in alignment with our values.
ATA Trainer Summit – Building Bridges to Enhance Our Service
On July 8 – 11 we had the Global ATA Trainer Summit – Building Bridges to Enhance Our Service. The time together truly was a pivot towards the future. It was a chance for authentic and conscious communications between trainers from over 14 countries in multiple languages. Discussions on fundamental and sometimes challenging topics happened during the four sessions.
The Steering committee is completing a full follow-up report to be sent out by July 26th and it will be posted on Sutra along with notes from the break-out groups. Recordings of the workshops that were offered in English and Spanish will be available in the eLearning Center by August 8th. In the next bulletin we will include a full list of the workshops offered and how to access them.
