Diversity: Dialoguing Towards Self-Understanding
How accepting are we? What gets in the way? In a safe, and nonjudgmental environment, let's understand our overt and unintentional biases and privileges and how we can strive towards cultural competence, self-awareness, and critical thinking. "Differences" are a hot topic and something that even seasoned professionals continue to grapple. Let's navigate the “growing pains” of self-exploration and consider encounters that push us to question our thoughts, behavior, and actions. Leave and lead with a greater self-acceptance and appreciation of others.
