The InterGroup Dialogue 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
  • Use constructive approaches to dialogue and the bridging of differences
  • Consider how attorneys in a pluralistic society can use InterGroup Dialogue skills to serve clients, advance causes, and enhance professional satisfaction
  • Expand learning through readings and participating in workshop activities and interactive discussions

This will be a highly interactive workshop and students will be expected to have completed all assigned readings in advance of our meetings and come prepared for vigorous and respectful discussion. The InterGroup Dialogue workshop is designed to stimulate learning, growth and engagement across the cultural identities of race, religion and sexual orientation to provide students with the affective, behavioral and cognitive acumen that will promote skill-building to navigate effectively in our increasingly pluralistic nation and world.

The Workshop consists of seven, two-hour sessions that occur on various Mondays from 6:15 p.m. – 8:15 p.m. Barco Law Building Room 428 September 10 and 17, October 1, 5, 29, November TBD & 26. A light meal will be provided at each session.
