The Art of Consensus Decision Making Workshop

Brad WalchukGeneral

As the new school year is starting up, we’d like to invite you to

The Art of Consensus Decision Making Workshop

On September 7th, 2013, join the Political Action Committee of CUPE 3906 for an engaging, facilitated workshop to get us ready for the upcoming year!  This workshop will introduce the concept of consensus-based decision-making, its potential usefulness for labour and other political organizing, and some of the challenges it presents.

All CUPE 3906 members and staff are welcome to attend.  The workshop will be of particular interest to those involved in any committee and/or administrative work or new members interested in getting more involved.  No previous familiarity with consensus-based decision-making is required!

Facilitator Rae Mitchell loves consensus. She also loves to share her experiences and ideas about it with other people, and to learn about their experiences – challenging, rewarding, and those that are both! After many years of observing and practicing consensus in formal and informal environments, she became convinced of its power to transform relationships, both internal to a person and in society!

Light snacks and refreshments will be available.  Questions?  Email us at
