In the age of #blacklivesmatter and #metoo, it is easy to feel personally attacked. Aspects of our identity, things we have no control over, which happened before we were born, or are just the way we were born, seem to be up for constant criticism. We'd like to say and do the right thing, but what exactly is that? And why are people yelling at me for asking?! I'M ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS!!! ..... [..... wait, can I still say "guys"?!]
There is a way to start making sense of it all. To give yourself tools to understand (and learn from) your own reactions. To honor your feelings, fears, and experiences. To create an emotionally secure foundation from which to engage the breathtaking social change we are witnessing. They key is identity: your beliefs about what makes you "You". In this workshop, we explore our relationship to personal identity in a supportive environment, where mistakes are welcomed as a vital part of the learning process.
 This workshop will help you:
•      Accept and articulate perception of your own identity
•      Understand and appreciate the way others perceive our own identity
•      Gain insight into how perceptions of our own identity affect our worldview
•      Prepare to work effectively with more diversity in your work and life communities.
