Description

The Diversity Intergroup Dialogue Workshop is open to all 2L, 3L, LLM, MSL and joint-degree Pitt Law students and brings together those with diverse cultural and social identities in a small group setting, with the goal of engaging students in experiential learning as well as open and constructive dialogue concerning issues of intergroup relations, conflict and community. Students will learn from each other’s experiences and examine how race, ethnicity, class, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression relate to power and privilege; and will practice 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 better serve clients, advance causes and enhance professional satisfaction. Students will expand their learning through readings and participating in workshop activities and interactive discussions.
