The first step in embracing diversity is acknowledging that we all carry assumptions and experiences that influence the way we interpret and interact with people whom we perceive as “not like us” or “the other."

The class will be an exploration of our personal and collective perspectives about diversity within an accepting and open format. We will use the book Waking Up White: and Finding Myself in the Story of Race, by Debby Irving, to provide an initial structure for discussion. Participants will read sections of the book prior to each class. We will use the ideas to prompt participants to explore their own assumptions and biases and discuss how our collective biases impact our interactions in a diverse world. We welcome those who are willing to be open and dig deep in this process.

Participants are responsible for acquiring a copy of the book.

If you have any questions please call Susan Lazareck or Judy Steinberger.
