Building Bridges: Strengthening Leadership for Diverse Communities Workshop on September 14

The National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) states that an effective diversity training program must teach conflict resolution skills, effective listening, how to manage dialogue across group lines and a rationale for creating a welcoming community that becomes everyone’s responsibility. The Building Bridges workshop follows a model developed by the NCBI and has been offered on many college campuses across the United States.

A Building Bridges: Strengthening Leadership for Diverse Communities workshop is scheduled for Friday, September 14, 2018, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. in Talley Student Union, Room 3210.

Participants will:

  • celebrate their similarities and differences;
  • identify the misinformation that they have learned about other groups;
  • identify and heal from internalized oppression;
  • claim pride in their own group identities; and
  • gain empowerment by learning concrete tools for changing prejudicial comments and actions.

This program is interactive and makes a great impact on all involved. For more information, see the NCBI website.
