An Immersion Experience on Race

On July 18, 19, 20, and 21, the Beyond Diversity Resource Center is offering a unique training opportunity, the Beyond Diversity Summer Institute: An Immersion Experience on Race.

The Beyond Diversity Summer Institute will explore how race continues to have a deep and lasting effect on how we view the world and interact with one another. Among many intriguing topics, we will investigate (1) perceptions about race that are formed through early messages we receive about race, (2) the history of race in the United States, and (3) the influence of ideology about race on individual and institutional behavior. Participants will create action plans to address racial issues in the places where they live and work. Learning activities will include a trip to Philadelphia’s Constitution Center and Chinatown. The Institute will be held at the Westfield Friends Meeting House in Cinnaminson, NJ (near Philadelphia, PA).
