Thursday, February 20, 2020
9:00 AM - Duration: 3 hours
The event will take place in Room 411.0 at the address listed above.
Understanding what difference, diversity, and inclusion really mean and building awareness and skills to work and communicate more effectively across differences in the future
Course Objectives and Description:
“Diversity” has become a term used so frequently and in so many settings that, and may even give rise to an emotional charge in some, particularly due to current events that highlight differences as a source of conflict or even violence. This practical, interactive workshop will help both willing and skeptical participants understand what Diversity, Inclusion, and Culture are all about and why they are so important in the nonprofit environment, for their organization, for their internal and external counterparts and for themselves. They will then learn why and how people work and communicate in different ways, the relationship between culture and identity, and begin practicing how to relate to others more effectively in the future.
- Learn what it means to be diverse, inclusive and culturally competent and why it is important for our community, our organizations and us as individuals
- Understand how personal values, behaviors, and communication styles are determined by a mixture of different cultural factors, and the relationship between culture and identity
- Begin practicing how to work and communicate with people from other cultures more effectively in the future
