Series on Diversity
IMPACT OF THE -ISMs
& FORGING FORWARD TOGETHER
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 | 3:00 - 4:15 p.m.
Hale Hall | MLK Auditorium
While our commonalities unite us, our differences make us unique and special. Our origin stories depict who we are, how we have arrived here, and where we are headed. The origin stories of marginalized peoples, however, are often laced with the “-isms” (i.e. racism, sexism, ageism, classism, homophobia, xenophobia, religious intolerance, etc.). This session will explore how the “-isms” have impacted and shaped our personal stories, and how we can forge stronger community bonds in an effort to eradicate these “-isms” in practical ways.
