Living Library


This session allows participants to get a glimpse of life from the perspective of someone who has a unique story to tell.

The goal is to help participants gain a new appreciation for diverse ways of experiencing the world.  To foster a deeper respect for our differences, and to challenge stereotypes.  To inspire each other through a renewed appreciation for our common humanity, and to foster a richness and depth to the way we work across differences in our roles as professionals.

Perhaps you are a member of the LGBTQ community, have a racialized identity, participate in a faith tradition that brings a lot of meaning to your life, experience a disability, or have encountered a life-changing event.  Maybe you’ve overcome barriers or prejudice, or perhaps you’ve seen something that has left you with a sense of wonder.  Whatever your story, we hope you will consider sharing it with one or more colleagues in relaxed small group discussions.
