NCRC-Art of Inclusive Communication
Participants study a model for understanding  intercultural (and other identities) awareness and learn skills that help their own development in diverse settings. Fun, yet thought-provoking exercises help participants learn about how the unwritten rules we live by are not always universal. Diversity, in the fullest sense of the word, which includes not only race and ethnicity, but also gender, sexual orientation, age, lifestyle, and abilities, is explored and valued. Recognition of the advantages some have and the history of exclusion are touched upon in a way that helps people move forward together. Additionally, we look at how respectful communication can address difficult comments from others that might be considered racist, sexist, ageist, homophobic, or in other ways derogatory to others. All of this is done in a safe and respectful learning environment.
