The Inclusive Leadership Co-operative keeps costs as low as possible by running on the spirit of generosity. You may have heard the “stone-soup” story where the inhabitants of a poor village managed to make a tasty and nourishing pot-luck soup by everyone contributing a little bit of this and a little bit of that. We apply this stone-soup metaphor to cover the costs of our Inclusive Leadership Gathering so that everyone who wants to come can come.
- Each person coming is asked to contribute what you can comfortably afford toward the costs of food and accommodation
- The Inclusive Leadership Co-operative seeks financial support from generous people and organizations who value diversity.
- We ask participants to seek financial support from your employer, family, school, community organizations you belong to, service clubs and socially responsible businesses.
We invite you to keep the spirit of generosity and the stone soup story in mind as you review these costs for our September 28 to 30 Inclusive Leadership Gathering and decide what is comfortably affordable for you and the people you are bringing with you. We also appreciate everyone’s help with fund-raising, seeking sponsorships and helping sponsor people who face financial barriers. We have found over and over again that by all of us sharing the spirit of generosity in these ways, we always manage to cover the costs for everyone who wants to come.
Here are the costs for adults. Costs for youth are 1/2 these adult fees. Costs for children are 1/3 these adult fees.
