Have you ever found yourself in a difficult multicultural discussion with staff, co-workers, community members, family members or others? Perhaps you’ve been in a conversation where you wished that you could’ve responded in a different way to an inappropriate behavior, remark or joke? Many attendees of the two- day Multicultural Self-Awareness workshop have indicated that they would benefit from opportunities to practice ways to use their voice to take leadership in dealing with difficult multicultural discussions. The purpose of this workshop is to provide frameworks and practical experiences for participants to explore how difficult discussions can become opportunities for transformative dialogue. Participants will learn approaches to positive confrontation and the connections between personal healing, organizational and community change, social justice and authentic relationships across differences. This workshop is open to all MSUE staff and community members.
