Fundamentals of Diversity: Appreciating Differences

  • When September 14 , 2016, noon to 2 p.m.
  • Who Michelle Deramo

    Director, Diversity Education Office for Diversity and Inclusion, Virginia

  • Where Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, M 210
    2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016

This session uses creative expression and personal reflection to deconstruct the notion of diversity as otherness. The desired outcome is for participants to get to know one another beyond their social signifiers; however, in order to achieve this outcome, we need to recognize how these social signifiers matter. This workshop is required for the Diversity Associate Certification. This workshop engages participants to develop their thinking around diversity:
• What do we mean when we describe someone as a diverse individual?
• Is the label of diversity exclusive to certain groups?
• Do we all have a stake in diversity because human experience is so varied?
