Highland Heights, KY—May 31, 2019—Executive Director of the Kentucky Campus Compact, Gayle Hilleke, spoke at the 2019 Midwest Campus Compact Conference: Dispatches from the Midwest: Community, Collaboration and Critical Perspective on May 29, 2019 with Dan Joyner, a Facilitation Consultant. The conference was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the University of Minnesota.


Her presentation was titled “An Intentional Dialogue for Campus-Community Partnerships: A Framework for Transformation”. Attendees learned several asset-based social technologies based upon the Art of Hosting, Asset Based Community Development, and Six Conversations that Matter. The Six Conversations That Matter by Peter Block assist in creating an efficient work environment by encouraging a sense of community through changing workplace dialogue. The Six Conversations are invitation, possibility, ownership, dissent, commitment, and gifts. Hilleke uses this metric to encourage intentionality in the workplace that lowers the power distance between employees to create community.
