All MSUE employees regardless of funding source or appointment are expected to attend this "cornerstone" multicultural workshop which sets an organizational framework for recognizing, understanding and appreciating differences.
During this two-day Multicultural Self-Awareness Workshop, participants will explore ways in which to view interactions with people different from themselves. The emphasis is on differences rather than similarities. The workshop focuses on the individual and helps explore belief systems about multiculturalism to identify feelings and values from a multicultural perspective. This intensive learning experience focuses on increasing awareness of several areas of prejudice, discrimination and oppression, including racism, sexism, classism, heterosexism and ableism. Participants are encouraged to reflect on how they've learned to think about human differences and on the widespread tendency to view differences within a monocultural view of "better than/less than" thinking. In addition, participants have opportunities to apply what they're learning to work-related scenarios and explore alternative, more helpful behaviors.
