#3DNYC - Diversity, Differences, and Dialogue - Using dialogue training, direct service, and reflection to help students dive deeper into the 8 social identifiers of diversity. The purpose of this project is to educate students on identity, differences, and the importance of dialogue. Specifically, the program will aim to: educate students on the 8 social identifiers of diversity (age, race, ethnicity, ability, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status), as well as teach them that diversity and identity are relevant to all introduce the foundations of dialogue and encourage students to use these skills through reflection and direct service provide students with a foundation to design a platform for all network students to dialogue about differences Students will spend the first full day learning about the 8 social identifiers, how the identifiers pertain to them, and the foundations for dialogue. Each day after this, students will focus on 1-2 identifiers per day. A typical day will begin with prayer, a presentation by a guest speaker(s), dialogue activities, and a service activity that reflects the identifier(s) of the day. Because time will not allow us to cover each identifier in depth, we will focus on ability, religion, race, ethnicity, and gender. On the last day, students will be encouraged to work together to design an online platform (i.e. - blog, google site, tumblr, etc.) that can be used as a resource by all network schools.
