"What It's Like To Be Me"
That's right. We are now into our fourth semester!
Are you curious about other people? Have you ever wanted to ask questions of, or hear stories from those who are different from you? Are you interested in helping to build a socially just living and working environment at Grinnell? Here is one place to start!
Join us for “What It’s Like To Be Me…” a series of intentional small group conversations hosted by Grinnellians from diverse social and cultural backgrounds. Your hosts will invite you into their proverbial home, into their world as they explore one of their group identities. While no individual host can represent a particular identity group, they can share their own individual experiences and perspectives, and they can share how their unique identities intersect to impact their daily lives. Come listen to their stories, ask honest questions, and get to know them better!
We hope this programming series will enrich our appreciation of diversity training and provide a personal foundation for deeper discussions and relationship building. Because of your support, “What It’s Like To Be Me…” has won the Midwest Region CUPA-HR (College and University Personnel Association – Human Resources) Successful Practices Award!
