Practical Applications of an Innovative Model
Date: Jun 16, 2022
Time: 1:00 – 3:00PM (PST – Arizona)
The unyielding question for our society is: How do we deal with difference? In other words, how do we deal with people who think and behave differently?
To answer these fundamental questions, we recognize that the approaches offered by the intercultural field (IC), the diversity , equity, inclusion, and belonging field (DEIB), and the social justice (SJ) field – all related but different fields – are by themselves insufficient to transform the world around us. This workshop will offer an innovative approach through the emerging field of Global Inclusion. Together we explore a model with relevant competencies and apply it to real life situations.
