Welcoming Diversity: Valuing the Differences Among Us

Fri, 04/04/2014 - 4:13pm
Friday, April 4, 2014 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

This day-long workshop uses the award winning National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) community building model. OSU's team of NCBI trained facilitators lead participants through a series of interactive exercises and conversations to assist them in identifying and understanding the impact of oppression and oppressive behaviors on themselves and others. Participants will be introduced to skills that can empower them to become more effective leaders and allies for others.   

Workshop goals include: identifying misinformation we have learned about others; identifying and express pride in groups we belong to; learning how other groups experience mistreatment; learning the personal impact of incidents of discrimination; and learning how to interrupt prejudicial remarks. 

Pre-registration required - 8:30am-4:30pm, Memorial Union Joyce Powell Journey Room.
