Courtney Lonergan, Facilitator 

Methods & Tools Developed with Diversity and Inclusion as Core Values: Courtney is a master trainer and facilitator of the Technology of Participation methodologies; developed by the Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA). The ICA is an international non-profit with sites in 30+ countries across the globe, which facilitates and trains local people in participatory capacity building strategies. By being participatory, the facilitative methods themselves break down hierarchical structures and engage the voice of populations and individuals who were formerly oppressed or ignored. By equally engaging the wisdom of the entire community or group massive change can result. 

Who is she? Courtney is an enthusiastic and compelling graphic facilitator who engages diverse perspectives of her participants in meaningful dialogue to elicit inspired action and thoughtful working groups. She uses color, images and words to create appealing visual flipcharts and documents that tell the story and show the journey of the group. A highly recommended Cultural Anthropology Professor at ASU, Courtney listens for the insights and connections behind the words and uses symbols and imagery to show the progression of a lecture or group dialogue.  (read full bio)
