GlobalPDX Lunch & Learn “Creative Approaches to Communication and Conflict Resolution” with Michelle Helman

04/18/2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Creative Approaches to Communication and Conflict Resolution: how to alleviate friction  amidst challenge and change.



Navigating conflict and change can be challenging, period. Effective communication for global development organizations is essential to ensure values align with actions and impact. Challenges, change, and conflict often arise when we are working within complex contexts, and unintentional harm can be done when leaders do not have strong communication skills in their professional toolbox. 

When we have the tools and skills to engage in meaningful practice, we can build relationships that foster understanding, connection and belonging. Learn by doing in this session via engaged activities and time for reflection, discussion, and debrief. You will leave feeling more connected, confident, and capable to apply your refined skills.




Join Michelle Helman, Equity, Peace & Conflict Consultant, in this Lunch & Learn Session. Michelle is committed to transforming the way people solve problems and create solutions by using creative design, evaluation, and facilitation methods. She has 20+ years of global experience working in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors guiding leaders and teams to build their capacity to work better together to navigate conflict – leading to innovative solutions, trust and strengthened relationships. Michelle is an Advanced Meditator and holds a MA in Peace & Conflict Studies as a Rotary Peace Fellow.
