(from a social justice framework of equality, fairness, and respect for all people)
Microaggressions
Diversity & Inclusion.
"The telling and hearing of stories is a bonding ritual that breaks through illusions of separateness and activates a deep sense of our collective interdependence."
-Annette Simmons
Identity
Privilege
Community
Intersectionality
Unconscious Bias
Bringing it back.
"Running with the wind at your back"

"Unearned"

To be white, straight, male, man, middle class, able bodied, religious status...others?

Based in access
How to create an inclusive community
"Who am I?" & "Who am I in relation to others?"
Members must feel like they belong

Members must believe in their community

Members must feel free to share their stories

Members must find a personal need

Members must want to contribute to the community

Members must feel like their contributions are valued

YOU:
self-aware
humility
honesty
genuine interest
intention
...Don't
make
assumptions!!!
"The only thing you can control is yourself"
-person's position, or space, in social relationships, structures, & institutions
-Ferguson 2016
Creating Inclusive Communities
...defining your lens
What are individuals already doing to be allies?
What is Drexel already doing?
What is the Counseling Center doing?


When did you realize there was difference in the world?

When did you realize there were "other" people?

What was the specific situation?

Did you realize difference as “
They
are different from me” or “
I
am different from them?”

What is
"normal"
and how does this impact our society and your work?

How does this connect to allyship & creating inclusive environments?
Defining Your Lens:
Self Reflection
Members must feel like they belong

Members must believe in their community

Members must feel free to share their stories

Members must find a personal need

Members must want to contribute to the community

Members must feel like their contributions are valued

What communities are you part of and why?
*both physical spaces and emotional spaces*



What have you struggled with throughout your life?

What struggles have you experienced from others?

When were your most difficult moments?

What did/do you worry about?

What assumptions were/are made about you?

What did/do you look for both visibly and invisibly
in your spaces to feel "safe"?







Where were you born?/Where did you grow up?
What did your environment look like as a child?
(House/neighborhood/etc.)
Do you have siblings?
What did your family "look like"?
What type of education did you experience?
What did you do for fun as a child?/Did you vacation?
What types of schools did you attend?
What did your friends "look like"?
What is your primary language?
(if bilingual...how were you taught multiple languages?)

1.) Your Background
2.) Your Experiences
Defining Your Lens
What do you “come out” about?

Who do you share these “coming out” stories with?

What qualities do these people have/does this person have?

What does it feel like to “come out”?

What are your primary identities?


3.) Your Identities

Who are you at Drexel?

Who are you outside of Drexel?

How often are you the only person of your identity in groups/spaces?

Are you able to be your authentic self all the time on this campus? Why/Why not

Are you able to be your authentic self in all your communities?
Why/Why not
4.) Your Communities
Large Group
Assumptions we make (verbal and or/nonverbal) about a person based upon their marginalized identity.
You are a
woman
therefore
I assume you want to/can have have children.
Problematic Programs
Battle of the Sexes
Speed Dating
Clothing Swaps
"Girls' Night"
Assuming everyone can spend $10
Assuming someone can walk around all day
...ways to improve...
Showing Up Everyday
Even if your community does not appear to relate to issues (ie. Orlando/Police Brutality) it is necessary to have these discussions

Shows level of care

Inclusive of what you know and what you don't know about your community...do not make assumptions!
You are an
ally
to your community/students.
Other Examples

Problems with Assumptions

Isolating/Othering
Highlights biases you might have
Not creating an open space for students
We are all new to spaces at one point...
(specifically at Drexel)
Everyone is wealthy
Everyone is Catholic (and celebrates Christmas!)
Everyone is heterosexual
Everyone is able bodied
Everyone can afford to go see a movie/go to dinner
Directions
Groups of 4 (In-Staff)

Move through sections 1/2/3/4 (In order!)

Each person in your group will answers the questions in each section for about 1 minute

You do not move on to the next section until all 4 members have answered
(
and we tell you!
)

You will spend approximately 5 minutes on each section

Once you have completed all 4 sections, you will have a chance to ask follow-up questions to your group members


**You might want to ask questions while your group members are speaking but GIVE THEM SPACE to talk without being interrupted!**
...what does it actually mean?
Our Experiences
Terms
-Kimmel & Ferber (2014)
Ally
A person who
actively
supports someone/something.

Alex:

Brave Space
vs.
Safe Space

She/They
Margins to Center
Index Card

(verb.)
"Who are We?"
Stereotypes
Prejudice
Discrimination
How do we learn them?/How do we reinforce them?

Embrace anecdotes that reinforce biases, but disregard experiences. :Some of my best friends are"
Guiding Principles
Assumptions that your space is already "safe".

If it does not directly impact you--you should be paying more attention

Something considered "the way it is" is often influenced by privilege and culture

Our views of the world are shaped by values, perceptions, assumptions, and expectation

The more people understand their identity the more they will be able to bridge gaps between communities
Forms of Resistance

Challenging and/or questioning extra support/focus/resources for minoritized identities

Denial of prejudice, privilege, access, "norms"

Learning and being taught to deny, pretend, and minimize the impact of being members of minoritized groups

Other ways we see resistance?
