When CDD facilitates, we develop and manage processes for the people involved in an important issue to engage productively about that issue. Whether a dialogue to explore and understand multiple perspectives or deliberation to develop and select the best solution to a thorny issue, CDD fully supports and advocates the process of facilitation because it allows for individuals and groups to achieve effective outcomes while building relationships.

We facilitate forums and discussions to help groups accomplish their goals through a collaborative process. By facilitating constructive dialogues, we not only guide a group to communicate in a productive manner, but also help participants to address tensions and resolve disputes within their group.
