The Brookline Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Relations is partnering with Women Thriving, Inc to hold a multi-day dialogue with self-identified women (of all ages) with low income.   True Change Associates will facilitate the Dialogue.

This participant-led dialogue will be centered around identifying issues in the participants’ Brookline community (whether it is housing, community engagement, police relations, relationship with neighbors, etc.) that are inequitable or discriminatory.  Once these issues and areas of interest have been identified, the facilitator will guide the participants by collaboratively developing a strategy of change and identifying and discussing the necessary decision-making groups needed to implement the changes.  The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Relations will then prioritize these strategies.

This virtual dialogue will be a participant-guided program, and only program participants and the facilitator will be present and part of the discussion.  The three-day dialogue series will be held on three consecutive Thursdays in April (April 15th, 22nd, and 29th).  A time has not been determined as of yet as we would like to hold it when most of the interested participants are available, either during daytime or evening hours. We do ask that participants attend all three days.  In appreciation of participants’ time, we will offer a small thank you stipend to all the participants at the end of the series.
