PRIVILEGE, a full-day workshop

PART I: Taking out the Sting, Taking in the Reality

PRIVILEGE and ENTITLEMENT are trigger words, especially for white people on matters of race. Privilege may be invisible to the privileged; it is never invisible to those without it. This workshop explores how privilege shapes our sense of self and our interactions with others.

PART II: Facing It, Framing It, Flipping It
Once we understand how privilege shapes our lives in multiple ways, we can become allies with individuals and groups targeted by racism & other forms of oppression. The success of our community is a shared responsibility. We have more power than we realize to make that happen.

CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES: Skill sets for effective conflict resolution

Wading into controversy is something most of us avoid, whether in the workplace, on campus or within our social or faith communities. However, we have much to learn through this difficult process.

The NCBI Controversial Issues Process provides a methodology that allows people on different sides of an issue to express their concerns, listen attentively to each other and then reframe the issue in a way that respectfully takes into account the concerns of both sides.

Join us to explore the 6 essential skill sets that allow disputing parties to find common ground.

WELCOMING DIVERSITY: Chaos or Community? The Choice is Ours

Our schools, workplaces and institutions must be inclusive if they are to succeed and thrive. A new leadership is emerging which:
• celebrates diversity of thought, perspective and expression
• fosters group cohesion and productivity
• promotes culturally responsive service delivery
• encourages collaboration between internal and external customers

Please join with NCBI Rochester as we examine what truly diverse work and learning environments look like. What does it take to create and sustain them? We have planned a day of hands-on skills-building and engagement that cut through differences of race, gender, age, ability, language, distance, faith, education and class in ways that promote inclusion and equity for all.

9 AM – 4 PM
