Mid Year Meeting & Diversity Dialogue

11:30 - 2pm Thursday, April 29, 2021

Zoom Meeting

Back by popular demand – Jackie Cranford is working with GCMCP to present a Diversity Dialogue, DEI workshop. Our first session with Jackie in 2020 set the stage for understanding the various lenses through which individuals may view the world and got us thinking about how the different identities with which we each associate ourselves influence our interactions with others.

Now we roll up our sleeves and get into more active participation. The Diversity Dialogue format will involve sharing of personal journeys from volunteers among our membership to help us engage in conversations about race and inclusion. Jackie will help guide us through our discussions.
