The Identity & Inclusion series is foundational for DEI work at the college. The content of workshop is the basis for all other workshops; if you are new at the college and looking to engage with DEI work, please start here.
Increasing our self-awareness of the personal identities / lenses that impact our interactions with
others is a first and necessary step in working towards a workplace culture of equity and inclusion.
Participants in this foundational workshop will explore their own identities using a model of identity
development and consider the impact of power and privilege in the ways in which we understand our own
sense of self and that of others, with the following goals:
- Increase our self-awareness of the personal identities / lenses that impact our interactions with
others at Amherst.
- Develop a better understanding of the range of identities represented and the complexity of
the term “diversity” as it plays out both in this group and at Amherst.
- Consider how inequity affects our understanding of identity and how that can play out with
ourselves, colleagues, students, etc.
