Having developed a definition of diversity in the last module, this week we’re turning to how diversity applies to you personally. This could be related to your personal experiences or things you’ve observed of those around you. Because Milestone One is also due this week, we’ll start to discuss the issues and events that interest you. Based on the module resources and your own research, write an initial post that addresses the following:
Describe an event related to diversity that either you or someone around you has experienced. What did you take away, and how did it enhance your understanding of diversity?
Share a current issue related to diversity that you have found interesting or that has personally impacted you. Post an article from a news source. How does diversity help you better understand this issue?
Post at least two responses to your fellow students. In your responses to your peers, take a look through the lens of intersectionality and consider both sides of your classmates’ issues. Compare and contrast your answers. What do you like about your peers’ explanations, and what would you add?
Make sure you support your response with the readings from this module, and any additional resources if needed.
