The way we work is all about the journey.
We seek to support reconciling leaders to be their most impactful at every stage of the way.
Reconcilers join our network in cohorts of 15-50 people, convened by partner organisations. They remain part of the network for life.
Their journey starts with a residential training programme, Encounter, which lasts for 7-14 days. Here, reconcilers learn the skills, tools, and habits needed to transform conflict. They live and learn together, sharing meals as well as classrooms, enabling them to form deep, lifelong relationships across societal divides.
It can be tough to leave an Encounter programme behind. But what comes next is where the long work begins. Back at home in their community, reconcilers can choose to embed their learning by undertaking a yearlong action project, which can be a personal objective, and/or cohort-wide initiative, or group action. In all cases, reconcilers receive flexible, tailored support from RCF and the partner. Projects are reviewed and celebrated at the end of the year at an in-person reunion.
As well as a project pathway, reconcilers receive ongoing support through a combination of peer-to-peer relationships within their cohort, 1-1 relationships with a designated RCF staff member, and access to senior mentors in the field through RCF’s mentorship programme.
Reconcilers also gain lifelong access to a gated online community space, Rose Reconcilers, which contains a global database of all reconciling leaders, hosts discussion forums, and features regular events and opportunities for further training.
