Sarah Noyes, When the Ideals of CIIS Meet “Anarchy”: A Tale of a Rejected Workshop

(This presentation was a part of CIIS Multiversity February 2008)

Discusses one student’s experience with attempting to hire a speaker for the Transformative Leadership and Transformative Studies department at their bi-annual intensive retreat. The speaker, Skip Spitzer, presented on skills needed for carrying out systematic change. Yet, it was viewed negatively since he described the organization of the WTO protest in Seattle, WA. What happened next was of great educational value in many respects. The presentation and subsequent discussion will explore how CIIS includes diverse ideas and governance.

Sarah Noyes, student in Transformative Leadership, is an experienced change-maker and has worked within the Non-Profit and Social Activism worlds for ten years. She utilizes her experience, dedication, intuition, hard skills, and positive attitude to influence change locally and globally. Sarah is most passionate about aiding individuals and organizations to see the ethical for the good of humanity. You will most likely find her at a salsa club or on a tropical beach.
