Intercultural Awareness and Practice Workshop

Intercultural Awareness and Practice, A Framework and Skills for Deepening our Faith and Community: A two-part workshop sponsored by the Equity Team and the Leadership Development Committee

At UUC, we aspire to be increasingly open to the vast, rich diversity of human experience, as an expression of our UU values and as spiritual growth and wholeness. As UU leaders, this means nurturing the ability to create strong interpersonal relationships across difference and actively supporting each other as we grow and change, both as persons and as a congregation.

Part 1, the Framework:
Saturday, April 21, 9 am to 12 noon, in Knatvold
This experiential workshop will help us see why and how we get stuck when encountering difference and will offer ways to see and talk about systemic oppression as we consider nine important aspects of identity. Come with curiosity, openness, and questions. Part 1 will provide a foundation for Part 2 of this workshop series.

Part 2, Focusing on Social Class:
Saturday, May 12, 1pm to 4pm, in Knatvold
In this concrete workshop, we will use social class as a lens to help us gain greater understanding of systemic oppression, and we will practice skills that can strengthen how we communicate, relate, and work together. You will leave with some next steps to consider for yourself and your relationships or projects. The material covered in Part 1 of this series would be a helpful foundation for participants.
