Centering: JOY 

"Joy can be a superpower. In leadership, at least for me, feelings matter. Joy matters. Joy can be an instrument to transform our institutions and our communities." - Jacob Padrón

"What are some of the things in your institutions that have shifted and changed [this year] for the better? What are some things that have shifted and changed that you want to keep, that you don't want to let go of?" -Erin Washington

Led by Jacob Padrón & Erin Washington
Plus TCG’s Adrian Budhu, Teresa Eyring, & Erica Lauren Ortiz

The final two days of the 2020 Fall Forum welcomed all practitioners in the field. Amid a divisive election and the ongoing pandemics of COVID-19 and racism, we focused on connecting with and caring for each other. Our four plenary spaces featured generative and emergent conversations around four themes: Joy, Community, Accountability and finally answering the question, “What do we mean by Just & Thriving?” In these sessions, we’ll make space to discuss the foundation and practice of these themes, allowing for the smaller group connections and sharing that have always been a beloved part of our in-person gatherings. Through these conversations, we hope to collectively envision our way forward.
