|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 3 weeks that begins at 12:00 pm on Monday, repeating until April 1, 2019

Join us for this series of intimate brown bag lunch conversations around inclusion and what it means to build a more inclusive and just community.

Brought to you by the folks that coordinated “Looking in the Mirror: a conversation on race, on June 21, 2018, this series of lunch time discussions will be a space to come together and dialogue on concepts of: Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Access as well as the Language that we utilize to begin forming a commuity of practice.

Our format will be: an ongoing facitlitated conversation based on the ideas bolded above as well as building a practice of intentional and effective communication. We hope that you will join us.

Monday, March 11th and March 25th, will focus on the concepts of IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion). The importance of having these conversations cannot be underestimated as we work to raise up more voices and begin to address our most persistant comunity issues with courage and empathy.

Monday, March 18th and April 1st, will focus on the idea of Language (How can we be more inclusive with our language? How do we start to become more conscious of the words we use and the effects that they have? Who gets acknowledged, heard and seen in public discourse, our businesses and schools and around our own dinner tables?)
