For each meeting we generally provide three resources to inform our conversation, typically in the "Watch, Read & Listen" format. We encourage you to engage with the materials as much as your time allows, and invite you to attend even if you haven’t had time.
We ask all participants to read and abide by COAR's Discussion Guidelines prior to joining your first meeting. These guidelines were developed to ensure all participants feel safe, respected, and supported as we learn together.
Detailed below is the general outline of our meetings:
7:15-7:30pm Optional social time with other COAR members
7:30-7:40pm Welcome & Announcements
7:40-8:30pm Breakout rooms for small group discussions to learn, consider new perspectives, share with one another and hear the stories of others.
8:30-8:40pm Reconvene and Report-Back
8:40-9pm Monthly Action Summary, Connection, and Close
