WRM ” Confronting My Own Thoughts: How to Handle the Stereotypes in My Mind “

May 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

PLEASE NOTE: This will be an interactive discussion without a presentation. In Person attendance is strongly encouraged. 


SPEAKER: CHARLES BELO

ABSTRACT:  While it may be impossible for us to deny the thoughts we have, it is not impossible to ensure that our actions reinforce our best values (honor, respectfulness, collegiality and inclusion) and not ones that stem from prejudice or ignorance. This energetic and interactive session provides an opportunity to explore reactions to various differences. Use of small group discussions will expose the impact that labels put forth.

Attendees will:

oConfront stereotyping and discuss methodologies to ensure potential prejudices/predeterminations do              not negatively affect interactions with colleagues

oEngage in a “higher risk'” activity to cultivate thought processes and then discuss focusing on “emotional”          and ” intellectual ‘” dimensions by discussing “culture” in that context; and,

oDiscuss tangible ways to challenge and abate the negative impacts stereotypes can have with regard to            mission.
