The Identity Wheel: Dimensions of Diversity

Blane Harding
The demographics of society are rapidly changing and diversity and multiculturalism are central to these changes. When we as individuals and institutions discuss these changes we tend to emphasize the external identities of others. These identities may include race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientations, gender, and a wide range of other socially constructed concepts. This workshop will allow participants to not only look at their social identity but even more critical is their internal concepts of their personal identity. There will be a series of exercises that allow us to move from being culturally aware (external) to culturally competent (internal) so we begin to realize how we see ourselves compared to how others see us.

Curiosity sparks KU paleontologist Chris Beard’s quest for man’s ancient cousins When he’s not scrutinizing ancient primate fossils in his KU lab, world-renowned paleontologist Chris Beard (http://bit.ly/1w3TQSj) is out stalking human evolutionary ancestors in remote corners of Libya, Turkey, China, Myanmar, Kazakhstan, Cambodia, Egypt, Tunisia, or Kenya. Beard, who came to KU as a Foundation Distinguished Professor, has a passion for being out in the middle of nowhere and making a discovery — “There’s nothing better than that. It’s fabulous.”
