Six Word Stories Part One: Workshop


November 4, 2019 -
2:00pm to 3:30pm

By taking the time to listen and learn about peoples’ experiences that are different from our own, it makes it more difficult to “other” them, and it makes us more likely to try and understand them, accept them, and advocate for them. Even if their ideas, faiths, cultures, and families are different from our own.

Part One: Workshop

During this 90-minute workshop, anu jain, lead consultant at Inclusant and a Dietrich School faculty member, will invite participants to consider their personal experiences and observations related to identity. anu will provide an overview of the various aspects of human identity that may factor into these observations, and lead conversation about how the individual components of our identities impact us and others. Participants will then each craft a six-word statement about identity and post those statements around the room. Once everyone has posted a statement, all participants will conduct a “gallery walk,” taking the opportunity to view all of the cards that have been posted. anu will conclude the session by leading the group in a discussion about their observations from the gallery walk
