The Bhutanese Community in California (BCC) in association with Asian Refugees United (ARU), IIF/IFACA-BHUTAN, and Foundation for Conscious Activism (FCA) is hosting three days leadership conference for self-identified Bhutanese trailblazers of leadership. The conference will be organized August 3 to 5 this year.
According to Robin Gurung, member of the organizing committee, the main aim of this leadership training is to explore what it means to be a Bhutanese community leader in America, engage in building a strong foundation for community healing and empowerment, and the best strategies to create and advance peace through dialogue and reconciliation.
Speaking to Bhutan News Service, Gurung said, “Keynote speakers, trainers, and experts to facilitate the seminars are drawn from the restorative justice department, mental health division, human rights organization, non-violence promoters, academia, arts, and spiritual activism.”
The organizers have open the online application for the Bhutanese diaspora living in the United States.
