This workshop is intended to create a safe space for staff to a) explore your own identities and your places of privilege, b) incorporate this awareness into your interactions with students and co-workers, c) explore ways in which you can become allies to people who are minorities along some dimension(s) of the "Big 8" (culture, race/ethnicity, sexual identity, class, gender, disability, age, and religion), and d) discuss examples of interactions that can benefit from this increased multicultural awareness.
This will be a collaborative workshop, recognizing and harnessing the varied knowledge bases and experiences among the participants present.
Bring your lunch. Light refreshments will be provided as well.
