2) Code Switching:
Leaving Yourself at Home Code Switching: Leaving Yourself at Home Have you every felt like you couldn’t be yourself… every minute that you’re outside of your front door? If not, then you probably aren’t familiar with Code Switching & the danger it poses to true Diversity.
In this session, Chris engages the audience in a fun & educational way that leaves everyone moved & more aware of intersectionality issues in America.
One reason why you need to bring Chris Molina to your campus is because he presents in a way that is fun, engaging, and accessible. He is able to reach people that are often left out of the conversation.”
-Dr. Meara M. Habashi, Director of Brock-Wilson Center for Women in Management at Purdue University
3) Stereotypes, Myths, and Misconceptions:
What You Believe Matters!
It can be difficult to relate to or understand the prejudice, discrimination, and stereotyping that many experience on a regular basis. It’s even harder to acknowledge our own biases that may contribute unconsciously.
This session will probe the cultural biases that influence our behaviors and attitudes toward others while working collectively toward increasing our cultural competencies and mindfulness of others experiences and perspectives. You will have opportunities to engage in candid conversations exploring the effects that stereotypes, myths, and misconceptions leave behind while brainstorming ways to continually increase your awareness, skills, and knowledge in order to better support those we staff and serve.
4) The Talk:
The DEI Conversation That Your Leaders Aren’t Having
Described as an energetic light hearted cross between Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X this presentation teaches student leaders to:
Discover the one thing they’re not taught in any other DEI training.
Recognize 4 life changing skills they can use to handle any DEI conflict.
Uncover 3 fundamental truths that will never change no matter the times.
Deal with direct conflict that they may have in their organization
5) Opening Conversations on Race
Need a program on race that doesn’t center shame, blame, and guilt? In this program participants learn that opening conversations on racial issues in the workplace is a relational process. Dar guides a community toward a deeper, more-universal understanding of race so individuals and groups can confidently build relationships across race.
Using intergroup dialogue strategies, participants are able to develop greater awareness, appreciation, and respect for racial differences. This program can be customized for all levels and will support those struggling to open meaningful racial conversations or those currently developing strategies around complex racial issues.
