MRC Workshops

  • Intercultural Communication

    Participants will learn effective means of communication across cultures with a focus on communication barriers in work/educational settings. Topics will include: 

    • Forms of communication
    • Cultural differences
    • Language barriers
  • Bystander Intervention

    In order to meaningfully respond to incidents of bias within our campus community, we wish to educate and empower participants to meaningfully intervene and disrupt these situations. To do this, we are offering an educational opportunity that will educate participants regarding what it means to meaningfully disrupt bias incidents, but how to do so safely. We will then review how and with whom to follow up in order to aid those who were targeted and aid in the healing of our community.

    • Create a mutually understood terminology framework for the topic.
    • Introduce participants to Bystander Intervention as a community empowerment strategy.
    • Offer various approaches for participants to utilize in order to recognize, intervene, & follow up on bias incidents.
  • Build your own workshop

    If you would like to build your own workshop consisting of a number of topics included above, a member of our team can offer a consultation session to help create a workshop that works best for your team!

    If you are interested in this, please contact our office. We look forward to aiding your area to gain a deeper understanding of multiculturalism!
