Diversity 101 Training

The session with Dr. Newsom helped me to understand diversity issues not only in the world, but specifically at UNC. As a group, we were able to discuss the issues, stereotypes and biases we have encountered, and were able to share our unique perspectives in a safe place. I learned about some things that I would not have previously considered as either advantage or disadvantage in the United States, such as familial structure, and left the session with a new understanding of the world around me. In the days after the session, I found myself analyzing things I heard around campus, and considering the issues we discussed in the diversity session.
