|Phase 1: What?||2 hours||What do I believe about race and ethnicity? Where do these ideas come from? What can I do with these thoughts?|
|Phase 2: Now What?||1.5 hours||We continue the journey of discovering our thoughts on race and ethnicity and how we can impact our community.|
|Phase 3: So What?||2 hours (2 1-hour sessions)||We listen to other’s stories and find ways to understand their worldview and evaluate ours. Participants are expected to not just listen to our panel, but also follow-up with a small group discussion to process what we’ve heard.|
|Phase 4: Back to What!||1.5 hours||We begin thinking about how we can facilitate discussions like these. How do we bring about change with people who might have a very different opinion of race? How do we allow them to feel safe enough to trust us?|
