The three-day class focuses on creating an inclusive culture of collaborative learning in teams, communities, and organizations.

It takes place at the Potawatomi Inn Resort and Conference Center, 6 Lane 100A Lake James, Angola, IN 46703, in Pokagon State Park. The workshop begins at 9:30 am on Day 1 and ends by 3:30 pm on Day 3. The course also includes an introductory webinar.
