Justin Jones-Fosu Hug an Elephant, Kiss a Giraffe:Redefining Diversity in Everyday Life
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM LOCATION: Findlay area campus EC 111 Tired of the generic and boring diversity programs? Justin is, too! Sometimes we have made diversity conversations so complex that people have missed its simple core and foundation. Diversity has also been made into a holding hands exercise where everybody agrees, but it really is more about authentic listening, being open and respecting others even when we don?t agree. We?ve been talking about ?diversity? for the last two decades, and it?s lost its meaning. Justin has pondered how we can hit some of the basics while still honoring the complexity of today?s conversation, and he?s discovered it?s all about learning to hug an elephant and kiss a giraffe. Using music, movement and a substance-packed presentation, Justin will give your student audience an experience they?ll never forget! They will have fun while realizing the power that a diverse, engaged, socially-just college environment offers, and they will understand their role in helping to create an environment where everyone matters and feels empowered to shape their landscape. This diversity conversation is much better with Justin?s unique blend of high-energy, humor and practical content. Go ahead?open those arms wide and pucker up!
