Presented by Justin Jones Fosu
The big buzz word going around today is Diversity and quickly followed by Inclusion. How do you feel about it? Really, when you first hear or see the word “Diversity” what emotions and thoughts does it bring to your mind? Diversity speaker Justin Jones Fosu found that in his audiences there are several different thoughts and reactions. Some people love it, and some people hate it. Some people feel positive thoughts and other dreadful ones. Some people feel like it helps them and others feel like it puts them at a disadvantage. Jones says that we may have been wrongly defining Diversity in the first place and that EVERYONE benefits from it when it’s viewed the right way? Jones believes that we have to move the conversation from where it’s been (THE Head) to where it should be (THE HEART).

Concepts for Meaningful Conversations
Based on Dr. Maura Cullen’s book, “35 Dumb Things Well-Intentioned People Say,” this brief workshop presents 10 common uses of language, that while typically well-intentioned, are actually statements of bias, prejudice or cultural appropriation. The workshop aims to increase awareness of how we use language so that we are intentional about things we should not say.
