The CFC Listen and Learn Series is an opportunity to hear the increasingly diverse voices of various, often times marginalized, peoples and communities within the larger organizations and communities which we all belong to. These panel discussions are one-hour long and designed so they can easily be turned into a lunch series or fit into departmental meetings. Most importantly they are designed to connect people and communities across cultural, racial, nationality and other differences. Panels, through the sharing of personal stories, expertise and perspectives, serve to help break down stereotypes, increase empathy and understanding, and ultimately connect people within organizations and/or communities within larger communities.
Panel Topics: You choose!
African American Experiences
Blended Families, Blended Identities
Cultures of Central and South Asia

Important issues of income level, educational attainment, and age differences will be woven throughout the topical sessions. If you have recommendation for additional diversity and/or intercultural related topics, which might be addressed well by using a panel format, contact Helen for more information about CFC Listen and Learn programs. We often tailor programs to specific needs and interests.
