Thanks to Beth Zemsky & Joy Persall for helping us all get to know ourselves and each other a little better by explaining the results of the Intercultural Development Inventory each of the delegates took in advance of the conference.
Beth and Joy starting by giving us tools to help us communicate with people of different cultures and perspectives. To stick with the conversation even when it gets uncomfortable and remember that everyone here has good intentions.
Then we talked about diversity, inclusion, equity and culture. And then ended the night talking about different perspectives or mindsets: Defense, Minimization, Acceptance and Adaption.
