Professional Development Workshop Social Justice: When Diversity isn’t Enough
With Jessica Pettitt
Friday October 4, 2013 – 3:00pm
Small Ballroom – RCC
Even with limited information, we are socialized to make quick decisions about another person. This directly relates to how we work with, talk to, and support other people. When given an opportunity to examine “back stories” and assumptions, participants learn the positives and negatives of stereotypes. Participants can use this knowledge to make informed decisions in the future.
Nominated for three years by Campus Activities Magazine for Best Diversity Artist, and Hot Pick for 2011, Jessica’s programs are direct, customized, and highly interactive. Her workshops, trainings, and keynotes take participants on a journey weaving together politics, theory, current events, and storytelling with large doses of humor.
