    LSU - Diversity of Thought LSU - Diversity of Thought Presentation Transcript

    • Diversity  is:   •  Different.   •  More  than  race.   •  What’s  within  you,  what  makes  you  different  than  the  person   next  to  you.   •  Examples:  only  child,  disabled,  hobbies  
    • For  example…   What’s  one  word   you  would  use  to   describe  Beyoncé?  
    • For  example…   FIERCE   What’s  one  word   you  would  use  to   describe  Beyoncé?  
    • For  example…   What’s  one  word   you  would  use  to   describe  Beyoncé?   STRONG   FIERCE  
    • For  example…   What’s  one  word   you  would  use  to   describe  Beyoncé?   STRONG   FIERCE   POWERFUL  
    • FIERCE   Fierce  is  not  a  word  you  would  use  to  describe  every   celebrity.     What  else  makes  Beyoncé  different?     Beyoncé  is:   •  A  strong  female  role  model   •  Private  for  a  celebrity  of  her  status   •  AppreciaSve  of  what  she  does,  but  she  never   planned  on  being  a  child  star  or  celebrity.     Think  about  what  makes                                             you  different.  
    • Embrace  your  differences.   The  best  thing  you  can  do  is  capitalize  on  what  sets  you  apart  to  help  you  succeed.  
    • Bringing  it  back  to  your  Chapter  
    • Create  a  survey   ·∙  Distribute  within  your  Chapter  to  find   how  your  Chapter  is  diverse.     ·∙  Ask  more  quesSons  than  the  typical   demographics  to  show  members  examples   of  what  diversity  means.     Examples:    ·∙  What  is  your  major?    ·∙  How  many  student  orgs  are  you  in?    ·∙  Do  you  live  on  or  off  campus?  
    • Host  a  Twi?er  chat   ·∙  Raise  awareness  about  a  certain  topic  by   tweeSng  about  it  with  your  members  using   an  appointed  hashtag.     ·∙  For  example,  LSU  wanted  to  raise   awareness  about  microaggression  toward   women.  During  Women’s  History  Month   (March),  we  hosted  a  Twier  chat  using   #geauxPRSSA  to  discuss  the  topic  with   members  and  ask  quesSons  to  gauge  their   understanding  and  opinions.  
    • Collaborate  with  other   student  organizaBons   With  other  organizaSons,  you  can  reach  a   larger  audience  and  be  more  successful  —   whether  you’re  hosSng  an  event  or  serving   the  community.     Examples  of  other  organizaBons:   ·∙  (Pre-­‐professional):  Business  fraterniSes  and   honor  socieSes   ·∙  (Other):  Greek  Life,  LGBT  
    • Woman  of  the  Week  (W.O.W.)   PRSSA  at  LSU  decided  to  celebrate  the  women  of  the  LSU  Manship  School  of  Mass   CommunicaSon  because  public  relaSons  is  such  a  female-­‐heavy  industry.     Each  week,  a  student  would  nominate  a  professor,  and  she  would  be  featured  on  the  PRSSA   at  LSU  blog  and  social  media.  The  blog  post  would  honor  the  W.O.W.  for  all  of  her  successes   and  hard  work  in  the  public  relaSons  field.  
    • Diversity  of  Thought  (DOT)  Campaign   PRSSA  at  LSU  produced  the  Diversity  of  Thought  campaign  to  spread  awareness  about  the   meaning  of  diversity  across  campus.     The  diversity  commiee  stood  in  the  area  of  campus  with  the  most  traffic  and  had  students   write  what  they  loved  about  LSU  on  a  dot  and  a  chalkboard  wall.  It  showed  how  every   student  has  a  different  perspecSve  and  experience  even  when  they  go  to  the  same  school.  
    • Use  Your  Resources  
    • Use  Your  Resources   PRSSA  at  LSU  was  first   inspired  to  start  a   diversity  iniSaSve  when   Brandi  came  to  speak  to   our  Chapter.  
    • Use  Your  Resources   PRSSA  at  LSU  was  first   inspired  to  start  a   diversity  iniSaSve  when   Brandi  came  to  speak  to   our  Chapter.   Your  school  might  have   an  administrator  who   advocates  for  campus   diversity,  too.  
    • Use  Your  Resources   PRSSA  at  LSU  was  first   inspired  to  start  a   diversity  iniSaSve  when   Brandi  came  to  speak  to   our  Chapter.   Your  school  might  have   an  administrator  who   advocates  for  campus   diversity,  too.   And,  of  course,  you  have  us.  
    • Watch  this  inspiraSon  video  of  Beyoncé,  where  she   talks  about  how  different  her  life  is  from  the  average   person,  but  she  loves  it  regardless.   hp://goo.gl/5JBg8s
