CULTURAL ENRICHMENT

Using the Courageous Conversations format participants experience open dialogue regarding multiculturalism, share observations and struggles with understanding, engaging and interacting with children, co-workers, and communities. 

 

Activities provide a safe atmosphere to share or unveil implicit bias, discuss stereotypes and personal experiences that shape participants different perspectives.  Participants experience cross-cultural exercises that teach them how to celebrate differences.

Tools are provided to further their scope of embracing difference and valuing their own layers of diversity within the primary groups they identify with.  Participants leave informed and equipped to live all-inclusive lives.  This improves the way they work, view, serve, and engage individuals who are different.

Participants emerge from this experience welcoming diversity not as a burden, but as an opportunity for personal growth.
