Communicating Across Differences: Exploring Multiple Identities @ KCPT
Jun 19 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Communicating Across Differences: Exploring Multiple Identities @ KCPT | Kansas City | Missouri | United States

Engaging in dialogue with those who are different than us is becoming more and more common and in a world where language continues to evolve, navigating the social landscape is becoming more challenging. Participants will engage in an identity mapping exercise designed to explore the different ways our socialization leads us to view the world and influences how we interact with those similar and different from us. Understanding how we think about and discuss our identities and how our unconscious biases manifest is the first step towards mindfulness and self-awareness.
