A Multicultural Training program empowering men and women to live with an awareness of cultural differences, and skills to build effective relationships. A day of learning, discussion, reflection and sharing about our differences.
Saturday, October 22: Issues & Isms
A 1-day workshop offering a safe place and powerful methods for exploring, without blame or shame, challenging issues that affect our culture, our communities, and our relationships.
I&I presents a useful model for understanding multicultural interactions. The workshop addresses many of the ‘isms,’ including racism, sexism, heterosexism, religious oppression and others. Isms & Issues is solutions based, focusing on practical tools to help you effectively navigate your life. You can build and maintain the kinds of relationships you want to have.
Those who have completed Issues & Isms (either with this workshop or elsewhere) can register for “Access To Allies” on Sunday, October 23.
Sunday, October 23: Access to Allies
Developing Deeper Relationships and Supporting Others
Do you want to better understand and learn to build relationships with people of different backgrounds? Would you like to become more culturally fluent? Are you interested in building your leadership skills?
Regardless of best intentions, our behaviors and words may impact others differently than anticipated–creating less connection or eroding trust. If we carry beliefs of being “less-than” for who we are by birth, by religious or sexual orientation, income level, etc., our view of the world may limit who we can become. If we enjoy the group benefits of unearned privilege, we have a responsibility for growing the sensitivities for learning to respectively reach across the divides.
To truly treat others as equal, learn and respect the differences. Common terminology creates an understanding of uniqueness. Come to share; come to learn; come to understand; come to connect.
This is an MKPUSA Intermountain Area sponsored offering of Issues & Isms/Access To Allies, right here in Idaho!
Open to All – especially MKP and Woman Within/HER Weekend grads, their partners, and others.
