Technology of Participation (ToP) Facilitation

Peace, Respect and Belonging is the vision for Wise Women Gathering Place. Promoting healthy relationships for individuals, schools, workplaces and community is our passion.


Technology of Participation (ToP) is a participatory consensus-based decision making process that holds profound respect for all and includes all voices. ToP group facilitation methods have been developed over 30 years in community development, corporate offices, and peacemaking efforts. Learn more about the theory here.
