Social Identity Differences, Diversity & Divisions: Taboos, Teachable Moments & Transformation
Karla D. Scott, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Communication and Assistant Dean for Diversity and Inclusion in the College of Arts and Sciences
This interactive workshop will explore the concept of social identities and how changing demographics of the country and Saint Louis University create challenges for our campus community. Using SLU artifacts, participants will examine how everyday lived experiences of inclusion and exclusion create opportunities for teachable moments in both classroom and co-curricular contexts. Activities will encourage mindful reflection on "the work we do at SLU" and how it supports the university mission mandate to transform society.
