This toolkit is meant for anyone who feels there is a lack of productive discourse around issues of diversity and the role of identity in social relationships, both on a micro (individual) and macro (communal) level. Perhaps you are a teacher, youth group facilitator, student affairs personnel or manage a team that works with an underserved population. Training of this kind can serve as the first of several workshops to provide historical context around the politics of identity and the dynamics of power and privilege, or to help build greater self-awareness.
The activities contained here are intended for groups as small as 10 to groups as big as 60. For groups any larger than 60, it is recommended to break out into multiple sessions with additional facilitators to ensure the conversations and activities remain focused. The Diversity Toolkit outlined here may be used as a guideline and can be modified to better fit your group’s unique needs.
