June session: Social identities play a foundational role in your study abroad experience. We view the world through our individual experiences and social identities, and people interact with us based on personal lens and social identity. Oftentimes, people volunteer and study abroad in places different than where they grew up. Once in this new context, we find ourselves faced with a number of questions and experiences related to micro aggressions, discrimination, hero complexes, an abundance of attention, different social norms, and a host of other things tied to our social identities. In this synchronous workshop, we will work collectively on how to prepare for & navigate differences and accessibility abroad. We will explore who we might hold accountable for making sure we are emotionally, physically, socially, and mentally safe while abroad. We will use an intersectional lens and self-reflexivity to unpack these topics. You will leave the workshop with: 1. An understanding of social identities. 2. An applied understanding of intersectionality. 3. Tools for holding conversations across difference. 4. Strategies for navigating difference and advocating for yourself and others. Register Here.
