Women's Initiative Network: YWCA: "The Invitation: Exploring Identity and Multiculturalism"
Tuesday, October 20, 2020

Time

Time: 

11:30 am

YWCA's Rebecca Schwartz facilitates an interactive activity designed to engage participants in the process of defining “culture” and examining its complexities. Often, especially in a workshop about multiculturalism or diversity, “culture” becomes synonymous with “race” or “ethnicity.” This activity reveals the limitations of such a conceptualization and challenges the assumptions about the important strands of the “cultural” in “multicultural.” It also offers an opportunity for participants to examine the depths of their own cultural heritage.
