"The Mount Speaks Out" Diversity Roundtable Series

College is a time in your life unlike any other. There are no two people who have the exact same experience which is what makes the journey so exciting. Here at the Mount we hope that you immerse yourself in all things that challenge you and help you grow as a person and as a member of the community. The Mount Speaks Out is a series of panel discussions focused on diverse topics that will encourage productive conversation and thought provoking questioning.

Race 101: How to Get the Conversation Started

Diversity and cultural competence are social issues at the forefront of technology, media, business, and politics and are issues that require all of our participation. However, long-standing stigmas remain around discussions of race and ethnicity which makes the journey towards cultural competency wrought with dead ends and roadblocks. This final panel in The Mount Speaks Out series will offer attendees the opportunity to learn how to talk about race and develop a broader understanding of the world and people around them.
