This workshop is in keeping with MenLiving’s commitment to equity\, diversity and inclusion and continuing to challenge our beliefs and lean into conversation. As humans\, we group the people and things we encounter in the world into categories. When the categories become “single stories”\, however\, we often get an incomplete and simplistic understanding of the identities of others. “The single story creates stereotypes\, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue\, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.”
For this workshop we will use the excellent Ted Talk by the gifted Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to take a look at the incomplete single stories we have bought into\, and how being able to see multiple stories can help us celebrate our differences AND our similarities.
This workshop is Wednesday\, Feb. 24th 7-9PM CT and will be facilitated by Erik Treese. Erik is the dad of 4 girls ages 3 – 13\, a MenLiving Stakeholder and Board Member\, a ManKind Project Certified Co-Leader and Leader Trainer and a Leadership and Life Coach.
We will watch Adichie’s talk during the workshop\, but if you’d like to watch the video beforehand\, you can find the link below.
This workshop will take place virtually over Zoom.
