“Diversity, Multiculturalism, and Inclusion... Are you the 'show up' for diversity? Are you the 'show off' for multiculturalism? Are you the 'showstopper' for inclusion? It is showtime for equity!”
Are you the 'show up' for diversity? Are you the 'show off' for multiculturalism? Are you the 'showstopper' for inclusion? It is showtime for equity! How are you showing up for clients on an individual, communal, organizational, and institutional level? This interactive facilitation experience will provide an opportunity to: (l ) experience spoken word as a tool for connection, (2) define the isms, (3) provide an opportunity to introspect and reflect on identities in a 'brave space', (4) identify at least two privileges you possess, and (5) embrace fluidity as a tool of resistance… what you do & how you do it.
This session is designed to motivate practioners/attendees to classify binary thinking and "bust the binary" in the counseling process.
