The Life Stories series provides a forum to foster community through sharing stories of challenge, growth and meaning. At each lunch, a student, faculty or staff member talks about an aspect of their lives that may be meaningful to others, followed by questions and comments. Lunch is provided. Sponsored by Mental Health Promotion and the Wellness Team.
We're back! Join the Office of Diversity and Inclusion for the first dialogue in a 7-week series. This event is open to all students and lunch provided. What does wealth look like among people of color beyond sports, sitcoms and celebrities? How do we challenge dominant conversations that suggest race and class are mutually exclusive while acknowledging class privilege among people of color? Inspired by the summer blockbuster film, “Crazy Rich Asians” our first dialogue will focus on common misconceptions about upper/middle class people of color and the ways they show up in our everyday lives.
