Hosting means hosting a private workshop for your organization or group (up to 32 participants). Co-Hosts contract for 58% ($7,250) of the workshop fee and 50% of the spaces (16), while you and LJIST advertises the remaining slots for public registration. Review our Host | Co-Host | Attend Comparison document for more information and guidance on which option is right for your group.
While you can start with any workshop, we recommend Clients who are new to LJIST start with the Centering Relationships for Systems Change (CRSC) virtual workshop and follow with Stopping the Cycle of Oppression (SCO). You can view our Suggested Learning & Healing Path document for more guidance.
Unfortunately, we cannot mix workshop content. Each workshop is designed to achieve its desired outcomes. We encourage you to contract for multiple workshops or sign up for the next public workshop when the other content will be covered.
To allow sufficient time between workshops and give our full focus to each Client, we have spaced out our availability to every other week. If you want to book a workshop on an alternate week, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will consider your request on a case by case basis. Note: there may be an additional fee for this schedule accommodation.
Please contact our office at email@example.com and we will consider your request on a case by case basis. Note: there will be a 20% "After Hours" fee for virtual workshops scheduled over Fridays, and a 40% "After Hours" fee for Virtual Workshops scheduled over Saturdays. We do not schedule Virtual Workshops over Sundays.
Please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will consider your request on a case by case basis. Note: there will be an additional fee for workshops scheduled earlier or later than these designated times.
Please contact our office at email@example.com and we will see if there is a way to accommodate your request. If not, we hope you will book for an available time slot.
If a participant needs to miss a part of the workshop and knows in advance, they can miss up to. but not more than 2 hours over the three days. LJIST will send time-limited access to a recording of the time the participant misses. The participant agrees to watch the recording before returning the next day. If an emergency comes up and a participant needs to miss up to, but not more than 2 hours over the three days, LJIST will make a similar accommodation. If a participant will miss more than 2 hours—either planned or in case of emergency—they will not be allowed to continue with the workshop and will forfeit their registration. No refunds will be made.
Getting Listened To Highly-Recommended Pre-Requisite
While Getting Listened To (GLT) isn’t required, we highly recommend this session be offered along with any workshop you choose. We’ve created two opportunities per year for our contracted clients to participate in a GLT as our gift to you (a $5,000 value). If the timing doesn’t work out for your group to attend a public offering, we encourage you host your own. We provide a 5% discount on your hosted Virtual Workshop when you schedule a corresponding GLT session.
Contact Ilana Uemura at firstname.lastname@example.org to access this discount.
We will schedule a corresponding public Getting Listened To virtual session the 4th Tuesday of the month prior to your co-hosted Virtual Workshop. Your participants are encouraged to attend as our gift to you (a $5,000 value!).
The Slack Workspace is an “after hours” extension of the workshop community. The workspace is a way to build and sustain community virtually and a way for LJIST to answer questions that may come up for participants when they aren’t in the workshop itself. A LJIST team member will “monitor” all the Slack channels at least once a day (except when LJIST Offices are closed on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday).
We use Zoom as our main meeting space. We ask everyone to have working audio and video for the workshop session. All registered participants will receive a Welcome Email 10-14 days before the workshop begins with login information. We will use “Break Out Rooms” as well.
Yes. We will record all workshops except for breakout rooms. This recording is not available to Clients or participants.
Yes, all of our workshops have Closed Captioning through an automated AI service.
Workshops do not include interpretation. If Client would like simultaneous interpretation integrated into the event, Client is responsible for identifying and contracting with interpreter(s). LJIST will charge $650 to cover additional planning and coordination with the interpretation team. LJIST will provide Language Liberation and Interpretation Process and support handouts.
Participant Orientation & Preparation Site
The Participant Orientation and Preparation Site (POPS) is your workshop guide. Everything you need to know about this workshop, including logistics information, pre-work, homework, and workshop evaluation can be found on your POPS.
Handouts and videos are only viewable on your POPS, not downloadable. While your POPS is open you have unlimited access to viewing these videos and reviewing the handouts. We encourage you to take full advantage of these resources for the 3 weeks that you have access to them!
Participant worksheets needed during the workshop itself are downloadable. You can complete the worksheets in electronic form or print them to complete manually. We have also included some additional resources that are downloadable. Look for the “PDF” symbol to locate downloadable documents.
We have tried to keep the pre-work to 2-3 hours. Ideally, participants will have access for 10-14 days to complete the pre-work. Pre-work will consist of reviewing workshop logistic information, preparing and submitting participant introductions, watching videos and reviewing handouts, and completing pre-work reflections.
To make the most of our synchronous (when we are together during the live workshop) time, we have created a series of instructional videos and reflection activities for participants to complete asynchronistically (on their own time). Completing the pre-work will deepen the workshop experience. Not completing the pre-work may impact your workshop experience.
We have tried to keep the homework to a minimum (no more than an hour and in most cases, much less than that). Homework may consist of watching or re-watching an instructional video, reflecting on a question or two, and/or completing a worksheet.
There may be instructional videos we will ask you to watch that will cover content that will be built upon the next day. Not completing the homework may impact your workshop experience.
