Community Assembly: Exploring Diversity
November 21 @ 10:30 am - 6:00 pm
About this event
The purpose of this community assembly is to open up the conversation about diversity within the Jamyang community, with the aim of understanding where we are on our journey towards creating more inclusive spaces and what we can do to make progress in that direction.
What can I expect?
As a community we will be questioning how diverse we are, whether we are comprised predominantly of people from white, middle-class backgrounds, and addressing the experiences of representatives of minority groups that engage with the community. Following the testimony of experience from a BAME speaker, there will be generous time allocated for empathic sharing in facilitated breakout groups. We will then integrate key points into a concluding statement by the assembly, which will contribute to the evolution of awareness and action by the community.
