Notes of Critical Feedback
Date and Time
Tuesday, September 17, 2019 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
What's your relationship with receiving feedback? Being able to receive constructive criticism is the key to improvement, especially in the practice of allyship and community care. The impact of our actions largely supersedes our intentions, no matter how good. Still, in our desire to be on the right side of all things at all times, many of us live in fear of failing to live up to that ideal, and struggle to cope with accepting critique and sitting with negative reactions to our best efforts. In this 2 hour-long session, we’ll explore fragility responses that stem from a conscious or unconscious desire to hold on to power dynamics, the mechanics of a good apology, how to avoid tone-policing, and finally, examples of ways to respond immediately after we’ve been taken to task.
