The second speaker in the Inclusivity Series, Dr. Stephen John Quaye, is facilitating sessions on intergroup dialogue today, Jan. 28, starting at noon in the Robert H. Stephens Room. The event will also be available via livestream. The sessions for faculty and staff include:
- Noon-1 p.m. – Keynote presentation
- 1-1:45 p.m. – Facilitated workshop
The event is co-sponsored by the Campus Climate Team’s Safety and Inclusivity Workgroup, Student Life and TRIO.
In this presentation, participants will learn different terminology (e.g., privilege, power, oppression, intersectionality). In the workshop following the presentation, participants will learn dialogic skills for enabling them to engage in healthier cross-racial dialogues.
Dr. Quaye is associate professor in the higher education and student affairs program at Ohio State University and an associate editor of the Journal of Diversity in Higher Education. Quaye focuses on understanding how students can engage difficult dialogues honestly and productively, as well as how storytelling is used as an educational tool to foster reflection and learning across differences. He also is interested in the strategies educators use to facilitate these dialogues and what they learn about themselves in the process.
