Diversity Circles

Diversity circles allows people from different backgrounds to engage in topics related to diversity such as race, homophobia, gender and class. The idea is to cultivate diversity through dialogue and understanding. Participants are encouraged to speak from their own experiences to move the discussion forward. The discussion groups typically have 8-12 participants and meet for 5-6 weeks.
