January 2018 Workshop
Often educators and administrators are afraid to begin a conversation on diversity issues because they have had a bad experience or feel they will say something wrong or hurtful. This seminar allows participants to practice talking to someone who is different from them in a compassionate and honest way. Participants will learn that they are not alone in their fears- many of us are afraid that we will hurt or offend someone with what we say or do not say. In communicating cross-culturally, the most important ingredient is our sincerity and our willingness to learn and understand each other. We will practice sharing with each other through films, small group interactions, role plays, and personal stories.
