Diversity: Reacting to Differences

Session Title

Diversity: Reacting to Differences




The treatment we extend to members of "other" groups is rooted in perceptions, values, and beliefs about them. Participants will view and discuss a video designed to trigger critical thinking about prejudice, power, and entitlement-all of which lead to the emergence of privileged and oppressed groups. Participants will engage in deeper exploration of their own experiences as members of "insider" groups who enjoy privileges and as members of "outsider" groups who systematically experience disadvantages. At the end of the session, participants will plan actions they can take to help ensure a just society for all groups.
