September 4, 2017 (El Cajon) - "Developing a Positive Multicultural Orientation Toward Diversity: Self-reflection about our Diverse Identities and Cultural Orientation" is the title of the first Diversity Dialogues workshop for the fall semester at Cuyamaca College. Presented by marriage and family therapist Mayumi Y. Douglas, this workshop is set for 2-3 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14, in Room I-207 at the Student Center.

The workshop is intended to recognize that everyone has biases relating to cultural issues. The goal is to increase awareness about cultural prejudices and to encourage efforts to engage with culturally diverse populations.

Diversity Dialogues is a series of workshops held throughout the semester that have become well-established venues for discussions centered on topics like race relations and student equity. The nine workshops are typically an hour long and are free and open to the public.
