DEIDEI Terms and Definitions (Part 1)[Important note: Each part of this two-part class covers different definitions. One does not hinge on the other. You can attend ‘part two,’ even if you were not able to make it to ‘part one.’]
Imagine there are five people, in a kitchen, discussing the best way to cook an omelet. However, each one of them has a completely different idea of what an omelet is. How productive do you think that conversation will be?
We can’t begin to have productive discussions about how to create and maintain a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive SCA if we all have different definitions for key terms and expressions used in these types of discussions.
This two-part class will cover many words, expressions, and concepts often heard in DEI discussions. The goals of these classes are to apply the most current definitions to these terms as well as offer examples of how they are used today; clear up any misconceptions or misinformation; and get everyone speaking ‘the same language’ so that we may have more productive and constructive conversations. 1 hour. 13+ with an adult. No limit.

DEIConsent CultureMuch of social interaction is based on perceptions and assumptions. Brains are weird. We take what “we [think we] know” about a person (perceptions) and our brains try to ‘fill-in’ all the parts we don’t know (assumptions.) Even though it is usually an unconscious process, perceptions and assumptions can brutally hurt feeling, break hearts, and burn bridges.
It seems inconceivable that all of this can be avoided with one simple gesture; ASK!
This class covers the basic principles of consent culture and hopefully gives you the tools you need to break down your own unconscious perceptions and assumptions and start working towards consciously and consistently asking. 1 hour. 13+. No limit.

DEINon-Confrontational CommunicationWhile we may not consider the way we talk to be ‘confrontational’ or ‘violent,’ the words we choose to say are important and have a serious impact on others in ways we may or may not intend. When we express ourselves with honesty and clarity, while simultaneously paying others respectful and empathetic attention, a healthier two-way communication channel is opened which leads to a better understanding of others and fewer misunderstandings, confrontations, and/or flared tempers. This class is going to cover the basics of careful observation, pinpointing our exact feelings (based on those observations,) and identifying what needs are not being met (based on those feelings.)
