NCRA Equity Committee Reading Group September Discussion

Oct 24, 2014 by 42 Fish

The NCRA Equity Comittee has a Reading Group which meets bimonthly onair to discuss member suggested materials.

 

September was hosted by CJMP 90.1FM in Powell River.

Reading Materials can be found below:

First an interview on NonDefensive Communication in this August episode of WINGS: Sue Supriano, host of Steppin' Out of Babylon interviews Sharon Ellison, communications Counselor - website www.pndc.com 

This link is to a 2 page pdf with great summery info on Non Defensive Communication 

http://www.pndc.com/documents/summary-sheet-english.pdf 

This link takes you to a summary of Glen Singleton's Guide to Courageous Conversations about Race.

http://www.tolerance.org/tdsi/sites/tolerance.org.tdsi/files/assets/general/TDSI_Singleton__Hays.pdf

These 'rules' he suggests are applicable to any kind of challenging conversations not just ones about race. Again it's about communicating with other humans.

Finally a pdf of Ten Principals for approaching social justice issues through the arts. They are from a paper about using arts education to teach social justice issues however I feel the points are useful in many work environments outside of the classroom. Whether we are working on a documentary, a marathon, an episode, or just thinking about our work in the station, these ten points are good reminders of things to keep in mind or ask yourself throughout the work.

When we meet, I thought we might discuss some of our stations policies around communication, discipline, and enforcing rules or running meetings and how some of these communication methods have/could be implemented. CJMP policies can be found on our website.
