Real Talk: Engaging Diversity Through Transformational Intergroup Dialogue
Real Talk: Engaging Diversity through Transformational Intergroup Dialogue (formerly known as Engaging Diversity, Keeping It Real: An Introduction to Intergroup Dialogue) will provide faculty, teachers, administrators, social service professionals, community leaders and activists with an opportunity to participate in intergroup dialogues with professionals from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Unlike most diversity education programs, intergroup dialogue creates an open, honest and equal space for communicating deeply about historically challenging issues as part of the process for building bridges among groups.
Real Talk: Engaging Diversity through Transformational Intergroup Dialogue centers learning on the knowledge, experiences and perspectives of participants facilitated by trained professionals. An intergroup dialogue is a facilitated learning approach that engages participants in exploring issues of identity, inequality and change through continuous, face-to-face meetings between people from two or more social identity groups that have a history of conflict or potential conflict. Intergroup dialogue is an innovative strategy to enhance participants’ awareness, knowledge and skills in relating to people who are different from themselves. The dialogue will assist participants in enhancing their skills in the area of multicultural competency development, cross-cultural communication, problem-solving, teamwork and collaboration.
Real Talk will consist of dialogues on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, class, and ability. During the online registration process, registrants will be asked to select several dialogue topics that they would like to dialogue on based on their individual preferences. There must be a minimum of 12 people to have a dialogue on a topic with an even number of people from the target and agent groups.
