Workshop Description

Are there things you “know you should know”, but aren’t quite there yet? Using personal experience, textual analysis, structured reflection and dialogue, and an appreciative inquiry approach this interactive workshop will delve into the personal and social meanings of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and their applications within The Mountaineers. Attendees will learn strategies for facilitating conversations about DEI, common DEI terms and concepts, and strategies and resources for self-study. Several short readings and a film clip will be assigned in advance, and participants will be sent a brief pre-workshop survey to help inform the content of the session.

Running Grass is director of Three Circles Center which, since 1989, works on bringing multicultural perspectives and practices to environmental and outdoor education. He is also a senior lecturer in the Urban Environmental Education Program at Antioch University, Seattle, where his focus is on multicultural education, critical pedagogy, and multicultural environmental leadership. His interest in the  outdoors took shape during an Outward Bound course in 1969 and was deepened at Dartmouth Outward Bound in 1974.
