Veteran Affairs -
Some of the military-affiliated population feel out of place as a student on a college campus or as an employee in the civilian workforce. Many are searching for the camaraderie that came so naturally in uniform. Support services and programs exist to help Service members make their transition, but the majority of those individuals or agencies are either on the military installation, or they exist in the community. The missing component is the X factor that will bridge the gap between one side of the gate to the other. The X factor that will create the "bridge" is a shift in the community, campus, and workplace cultures generated through training, awareness, collaboration, and action. This session will focus on creating that bridge.
Gender is complicated - it’s not important that you understand everything perfectly. It’s important that you listen, and trust that, with time, you will begin to understand how they came to know themselves.
10 Lens -
Understanding how cultural diversity affects the way we live and work.
Gender and Diversity -
Before we are even born, our gender influences everything and everyone around us. Yet gender is not a singular experience. Each woman and man experiences the world differently based on many diverse factors including gender. This workshop will encourage our Armstrong community to think and engage more deeply on issues of equity around gender and its intertwining identities. We will begin a path, together, toward empathy of each other's lived experiences and explore strategies in which we lift each other up and build the community we want - and need - to thrive. All genders welcomed and encouraged to participate.
