This 3-hour, online, interactive workshop will be an exploration of diversity, inclusion, and social justice in a multicultural society. Topics will include how difference is defined; how it is experienced; and how it impacts individuals, groups, communities, and the larger society. Mindfulness and compassion towards self and others will also be discussed, including the role they can play in enhancing understanding, empathy, and the capacity to build an inclusive and welcoming society. Participants will be able to participate in a small group discussion during the workshop.
