We live and play in a diverse and evolving society, but sometimes the world doesn’t catch up to who we are. We run into questions or comments that are embarrassing, hurtful, or annoying. Bianca and EK will lead a facilitated discussion on topics that can be uncomfortable to approach regardless of where you fall in the age, race, gender, or gender presentation spectrum. This guided discussion includes scattered personal experiences, observed scenarios from various social media, and short exercises to magnify and explore the impact of differences among us with your participation encouraged. We created this safe space for all of us to grow and learn as a whole.
This is an ongoing conversation that participants can take with them and continue their own growth, in local groups and society at large.
