Pitt Law InterGroup Dialogue Workshop #1
The InterGroup Dialogue (IGD) Workshop brings together students with diverse social identities in a small group environment, with the goal of creating an opportunity for students to engage in open and constructive dialogue concerning issues of intergroup relations, conflict and community. Participants will learn from each other’s experiences; examine how race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity relate to power and privilege; and use constructive approaches to dialogue and the bridging of differences. Students will also consider how attorneys in a pluralistic society can use InterGroup Dialogue skills to serve clients, advance causes and enhance professional satisfaction. The IGD Workshop consists of seven, two-hour sessions that occur bi-weekly. A light meal will be provided at each session. Students will expand their learning through assigned readings and participating in workshop activities and interactive discussions.
