SDO: Appreciation of Differences, Workshop Facilitator: Abdul Omari, Workshop Category: Others
Participants partake in an activity where they are forced to choose one and only one identity. After small and large groups discussions participants begin to add on more of their identities. The session is guided by activities and discussions that force us to think about how our identities grant or take away privilege.
In the end we should also be thinking about other people’s identities how best we can lead people from different backgrounds.
Next steps: Continue to tease out our own identities. How does context play a role in our privilege? How does context play a role in our comfort levels with our own identities?
