For the past 8 years Trent Hall has been facilitating conversations on contentious topics as a Penn State Facilitator and Trainer. With an audience of wide demographics primarily made of young adults, conversations during Trent’s experience facilitating are centered in the realm of identity with a special focus on race, culture, and gender dynamics. The time spent during these trainings focus on learning and teaching conflict management, empathy, socratic inquiry, and active listening.
In 2017, Trent moved into a facilitator role at the Department of Community Resources and Services with Howard County Executive Office under the #OneHoward initiative. #OneHoward is an initiative of Howard County, Maryland. Executive Allan H. Kittleman designed to promote community dialogue and reinforce the county’s shared goals of diversity and inclusiveness through a series of community conversations and educational events.
