4 undergraduate speakers 7:30 pmMove to small group discussions Student leaders as facilitators 8:30 pmWrap up and survey Reflection: Experiences with Inclusion Reflections on Video Think of a time when you have been snail. What was the

experience and how did you respond? Think of a time when you have been caterpillar. What was the experience and how did you respond? What thoughts does this video raise for you about being an inclusive campus leader? Table Discussion When engaging in dialogues about diversity & inclusion:

What excites/engages you? What challenges you? What surprises you? What do you fear or dislike? What do you worry about? Strategy: Observe, Think, Feel, Desire Facilitates open & direct communication

Helps others know motives thinking behind your response Allows you to own feelings and emotions without making others defensive by blaming them or their actions. Observe Comment on observable behavior perceived with your

senses and which could have been observed by another. Dont interpret another persons actions or comments. EXAMPLE: I saw your face expressing a lot of emotion not I saw that you were mad.. Observation can open productive dialogue because it avoids putting the other person on the defensive by telling them how they feel or implying judgment of their actions. Think

Express a thought/opinion about what you observed in nonevaluative language. EXAMPLE: I am wondering what you were feeling not I am wondering why you were mad. Saying what you are thinking invites others into your thought processthey dont have to guess

what youre thinking. Feel Share a feeling about what you observed. Use an I statement that focuses on your reaction. This response takes ownership of YOUR feeling rather than blaming

others for making you feel a certain way. EXAMPLE: I feel upset not You made me upset Desire Ask for what you want next in specific and direct language. EXAMPLE: I would like to understand

what you were feeling and why Allows others to know the reason behind your words and the outcome you seek. They dont have to guess what you want or what they should do about it. Start the Dialogue

Which of the students stories most connected or resonated with you? Why? Which of the students stories most surprised or challenged you? Why? What connections, if any, did you see across them? When you think about having dialogues about diversity and inclusion on campus, What excites you? Intrigues you? What scares you? Makes you fearful? What challenges you? What confuses you?

Prompts to further Dialogue

I hear your point about I can understand your response to. Could you say more about. Can you give us an example of. Help us understand what you mean by. I wonder what reactions others are having

I notice Im feeling a little triggered and wondering if others are too I appreciate the risk you took in saying that. I know this isnt an easy topic. I appreciate you hanging in there during this discussion. Lets all pause and write down our thoughts for a few minutes before we discuss this further. Logistics for the Evening Ask everyone to turn off and put away phones

Encourage everyone to introduce themselves Tell why you chose to participate as student leader Set group guidelines for the discussion Example: no interrupting another speaker or everyone speaks once before one person speaks twice Closing Logistics At 8:25, ask students to take out their phones and complete the online survey
