Institutional climate – in regard to a diverse population – is everyone’s responsibility. Whether business or academia, everyday interactions challenge an organization’s goal for a positive, inclusive environment. Giving Voice uses the power of theatre to spark dialogue on issues of diversity, inclusiveness and cultural competence. Based on a foundation of research, the nationally recognized Giving Voice troupe brings diversity training to new levels, addressing various issues of oppression, including micro-aggressions. This forum will engage audiences in thoughtful awareness, development of strategies and the opportunity to try those strategies in a safe environment.
