This workshop engages participants in exploring human diversity by reflecting on what makes individuals unique and how it affects one’s worldview. Through telling stories, participants learn more about themselves and others in their organization. This interactive workshop also provides opportunities to practice communication skills for understanding across difference.
The outcomes of the workshop are:
- To reflect on who we are
- To learn about others around us
- To explore the impact of identity in the workplace
- To practice skills for interaction across difference
- Identify resources at UC Berkeley
All of the MEP workshops, including the Looking In / Looking Out workshop, use experiential learning techniques. The workshop features small and large group interactions and discussions. Further, the workshop uses activities that provide a common experience for the group, and provide ideas for use in everyday work in a diverse environment like UC Berkeley. Resources are also discussed, so participants can connect with other offices and opportunities at UC Berkeley. The workshop is approximately two hours in length.
