Amid explosive race, gender, and immigration issues, tensions are high. As the public struggle between advocate groups for religious liberties, advocates for LGBT Equality, campaigns for hiring more people with disabilities, the black face scandal, and the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter Movements becomes more figural, using oneself as a tool for behavioral change requires the ability to work with others. We are called to work with others with respect...especially those with whom we most vehemently disagree. This workshop explores how in these challenging times we can be transformative change agents and compassionate healers capable of restoring relationships, fostering empathy, and building inclusive organizations and peaceful communities.

Learning Objectives
Participants completing this workshop will be able to:

  • Recognize the interplay of multiple and intersecting identities at various levels of human system: intrapsychic, interpersonal, group, organization, and society;

  • Explain how our brains form prejudices and processes differences;

  • Describe the three components of radical respect: admiration, dignity and civility;

  • Apply the principles of radical respect to case scenarios; and

  • Create their self-development plan as an agent of respect.
