DEI: "Barriers to Equitable and Inclusive Participation"

In our day-to-day interactions, each of us brings a script, a unique way of viewing the world. It is naive to believe that we can arrive at an ideal way of living and working together just by understanding our differences, talking together, and valuing individual worth. There will be conflict in our struggle to understand our differences. It will require taking inventory of our belief systems, how we relate to those different from ourselves and how we respond to those differences. 

Before the meeting on Oct. 5, view this TED Talk by Stella Young, "I'm Not Your Inspiration, Thank You Very Much".  Come ready to answer the question: what did you learn about yourself?
