Session Title: “Understanding Social Identity Development: A tool for building authentic relationships across differences”

Presenter: Eduardo González, Jr., State Diversity, Research Partnership Development, and Youth Development Specialist, Cornell University Cooperative Extension

Session Description: This webinar will explore the process of identity development within a U.S. context that is shaped by individual characteristics, family dynamics, historical factors, and social and political contexts. Understanding how these factors affect our own and other’s identity development is critical to leadership, positive youth development, and community building. By enhancing our awareness and understanding of the process of identity development, we can better position ourselves, our programs and our organizations to effectively navigate and build authentic relationships across differences.  The social identity development model presented in this webinar can also serve as a powerful tool for framing, examining and promoting deeper dialogue regarding race and race relations in our country.

This webinar will provide participants opportunities to practice ways to use their voice to take leadership in dealing with difficult multicultural discussions.

Session Title: “Organizational Values: Creating healthy organizational climates through inclusive approaches”

Presenter: Dionardo Pizaña, Diversity and Personnel Specialist, Extension Diversity and Multiculturalism Office, Michigan State University

Session Description: What makes up organizational culture and more importantly, organizational culture that is inclusive, supportive and inviting?  It may be helpful to begin this discussion by looking at our earliest learning regarding “better than/less than” treatment. If not interrupted, these treatments and behaviors can then lead to supporting cultural norms and other forms of cultures of power.  Participants will discuss how dominant cultural values such as fear of conflict, worship of the written word and either/or thinking – fear of complexity  can show up in many different forms in our organizational policies, procedures, processes and relationships and ways they can work to advocate for more inclusive, equitable approaches and community standards.
