What if I Say the Wrong Thing?

#NCLUDE small learning group

2:00 pm–3:00 pm
East Campus
Georgia Jones & Joann Ross,
This #NCLUDE small group is for anyone who wants to grow their cultural competence. For some, not knowing how to engage in culturally sensitive conversations prevents them from opening the door to building deeper relationships. Using Vern? Myers’ book, What if I Say the Wrong Thing?, group members will read and reflect on different scenarios to help build understanding and confidence. Topics and skills include expanding one’s comfort zone, avoiding in-group favoritism, understanding micro-inequities, seeing all cultures as valid, and using mistakes as an opportunity to grow. Books will be available on loan, or participants can supply their own book.

This group meets multiple times over the semester. Register at
