Comments from participants in the May 21, 2010 Engaging Diversity, Keeping It Real Symposium:

  • My participation has allowed me to critic and challenge my own beliefs, values, and prejudices in a more realistic and critical matter. The dialogues also helped me to better understand others who differ from me.
  • This is the first time in many years that I have participated in a discussion about race or diversity. Past times were not well facilitated and I ended up feeling hurt. It was healing to know that it is possible to talk about race in a positive way, although it is a hard conversation and messy. I also learned more about how racism affects people.
  • I thought the symposium allowed a variety of people to interactively explore individual thoughts and beliefs about others and also self defining notions. The interactive component helped solidify or deconstruct a personal belief that one may have held for others or self.
