Ourtown Institute for Inclusive Leadership - Mozilla Firefox 1242014 22554 PM.bmpThe ultimate goal of Ourtown is to make Arkansas an even better place to live and work by removing impediments to personal and corporate success that are often based on perceived or real differences. Issues explored include race, gender, sexual orientation, and disabilities, along with the nature of prejudice, discrimination, oppression, and privilege.

Ourtown is interactive and allows individuals to build the skills necessary to promote effective communication. Positive participants increase their ability to talk, listen, and understand more effectively, and to act across intergroup barriers.

Apply through the online form.
