WHAT IS YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF DIVERSITY?
Welcome to your first discussion in IDS 400. Each discussion is meant to be a collaborative space for conversation in which to process the concepts within the course. To ensure an interesting and respectful discussion, you are encouraged to think creatively about your initial posts and build on the points made by your peers. Discussing challenges that face our world often means investigating opinions and ideas different from your own. Remember to remain thoughtful and respectful towards your peers and instructor in your discussion post and replies, as discussed in the Module One Overview. It is also important to review the module resources and read the prompts in their entirety before participating in the discussion.
Create one initial post and follow up with at least two response posts.
For your initial post, address the following:
- Introduce yourself to the class, sharing as much as you feel comfortable sharing. When you introduce yourself, think about more than just your immediate information of name, place of living, family, and job. Think about preferred names and pronouns, culture, ancestry, and identity.
- In your own words, define the term diversity. Then, discuss how diversity affects your daily life: your personal experiences, field of study, or current/future profession. Share only what feels right to you. If you wish to share your experience with diversity, include that in your discussion. If you feel uncomfortable sharing your personal experience with diversity, feel free to describe this discomfort, or highlight a section from the readings that interested you.
