  15. 15. What are the goals of SNGs? Our Objective: By the end of this semester we will… Bring students along a developmental process of awareness of diversity, power and privilege and how to use their awareness in constructive behaviors commonplace in the modern work environment.
  16. 16. Expected outcomes We will mark our progress in steps: 1. Student will understand diversity is more than appearances. 2. Student will understand that identity is a complex concept that shifts depending on the change of scenarios (it is salient) which can dramatically impact how we work with others. 3. Understand that within the layers of diversity there are levels of power and privilege (and oppression) 4. Everyone has some aspect of their identity that has power and that power can be used “for good” in the workplace to create an inclusive and productive environment.
  17. 17. Four Class Activities How will we execute our objective? There are four class sessions in M100 which address this particular developmental process: Day 1: Introduction to Groups and identity location associated with the group Day 2: Workplace scenarios that highlight shifts in identity salience Day 3: Diversity Forum that presents the spectrum of Power & Privilege Day 4: What will we take away from this M100 experience?
