The UC Berkeley Labor Center and the California Workforce Development Board announce the launch of the High Road Learning Lab Seminar Series.

High Road Learning Lab Course One: HRTP 101

Course sessions will be highly interactive. Participants will be asked to read and review materials in preparation for seminar sessions and will be asked to complete activities between sessions. In the final session, participants will present a work plan specific to their HRTP to the practitioner cohort and to a group of experienced high road practitioner-advisors. Practitioner-advisors will offer constructive feedback and will be available for two coaching check-ins in the six months following the course. Participants will be asked to respond to a survey at the six month post-completion mark, sharing learnings from their work plan. (Note: lecture and some discussion sections will be recorded).
