More about Beyond Inclusion, Beyond Empowerment:
The Beyond Inclusion, Beyond Empowerment model enables us to make sense of the complex dynamics of Status, Rank, and Power. Whatever social memberships we hold, we can learn to identify the skills we’re using, notice the skills others use, and develop more effective ways to address the problems of privilege and oppression. The work is especially useful for teachers, counselors, organizers, and other group leaders.
Facilitator Margot Boyer taught writing and English at North Seattle Community College for ten years and lives on Vashon. She is a co-author with Leticia Nieto of Beyond Inclusion, Beyond Empowerment: A Developmental Model to Liberate Everyone.
Paul "Che oke ten" Wagner of the Vancouver Island Saanich tribe shares traditional songs and stories of the Coast Salish peoples locally and internationally. An award winning Native American flutist, he interweaves his Spirit-gifted songs on the Native American flute along with traditional tribal drum songs into a journey to an ancient time and place of the first peoples of this land. Paul was honored to speak at the COP21 climate talks in Paris alongside Jill Stein and Deborah Parker, and he participated in the global Canoe Project on the Seine River and the Hudson River. He is a member of the deFundDAPL coalition which recently defunded DAPL, with the City of Seattle removing 3 billion dollars from Wells Fargo bank. This winter, Paul led the funding, creation, delivery, and assembly of over 51 tarpees (modernized tipis with wood stoves) for Water Protectors at Standing Rock.
