Program

Description

This workshop provides an overview of frameworks that serves as a tool for understanding the dynamics of diversity, interpreting how these dynamics impact the community and lays the foundation for growth and change.

Spirituality is personal, and the impact of religious systems on the US and our educational systems is critical to building healthy, diverse communities. We all want to create inclusion, but getting there is the hard part. In this interactive workshop, participants will receive a framework for building the inclusive vision of partnership present in all of our goals and mission statements

Participants will be introduced to two frameworks for understanding power, privilege and difference. The group will then engage in an interactive process of imagining and creating a vision for what can be with a focus on local activism to increase spiritual acceptance and promote. We will explore the personal skills necessary for being an effective leader and change agent with colleagues and students. This workshop will be a combination of presentation and small group activities. Participants will leave with resources to support their efforts on campus.
