 A Community Workshop from the National Conflict Resolution Center

This FREE Seminar is a two-part series: February 23rd & March 23rd from 2:00pm – 3:30pm

Building on our success in teaching people to communicate more effectively,  NCRC has developed a state-of-the-art diversity training that leaves all  participants feeling valued, respected, and understood. This interactive  workshop helps participants explore their own personal and cultural identity  and learn how it relates to communication style; how these different styles  can sometimes be the root of communication breakdown; and, most  importantly, how they can learn to recognize when a communication  breakdown is happening and do something about it.  

Participants learn a model for understanding intercultural (and other  identities) awareness and learn skills that help their own development in all  kinds of diverse settings. Though the thought of venturing to other friendships  and connections outside of our own culture is uncomfortable for most, this  workshop helps that transition to be more inclusive. Fun, yet thought provoking exercises help participants learn about how the unwritten rules we  live by are not always universal. Diversity in the fullest sense of the word,  including not only race and ethnicity, but also gender, sexual orientation, age,  lifestyle, and abilities are explored and valued. Recognition of the advantages  some have and the history of exclusion are touched upon in a way that helps  people move forward together. Additionally, a look at how respectful  communication can address difficult comments from others that might be  considered racist, sexist, ageist, homophobic, or in other ways derogatory to  others. All of this is done in a safe and respectful learning environment.
