[Zoom Meeting] Open Your Mind with OpenedEyes: Your Circle Matters

About the Series:

The Nonprofit Partnership is teaming up with OpenedEyes to start the tough conversations that we need to have. It doesn’t matter where you are on the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion spectrum. It doesn’t matter what color your skin is. It doesn’t matter your sexual orientation. It doesn’t matter if you’re a nonprofit employee starting out or the leader that has been at the helm for years. All are welcome and encouraged to join in the conversation. Tune in to this series to have important conversations, learn something new and open our minds!

Please note – this series is for you, the attendee. Engagement via video/audio is strongly encouraged but we’d never turn someone away who’d prefer to soak up the information. Whatever your level of comfort or knowledge, we want you to find benefit. Save your spot now - there is limited space available!

Session 3: Your Circle Matters

Join the OpenedEyes team for a discussion regarding peer relationships and why they matter. We typically associate ourselves with those who are similar to us. But what happens when we step outside our comfort zone and interact with those who are different than us? We open our minds! Join us as we touch on:

Generating positive relationship characteristics
Peers that are different than us vs. peers that are the same
Discomfort around people who are different from us
How you fit into a peer group and why
And any questions or thoughts that you may have!

Please note: There will be five sessions total within this series - please feel free to join us for all five! Mark your calendar for the additional sessions:

Session 4: What WHO Are You? - November 5th at 10:00 AM
Session 5: You’ve Heard it Before and You’ll Hear it Again: There Isn’t Community without Unity - December 2nd at 10:00 AM
