Description

Cambridge Affinity Spaces: Exploring our Identities in Community

The fourth in a series of conversations on equity, diversity, and inclusion.

This session supports groups in being able to say the things that need to be said in an affinity community. Affinity groups not only support restorative healing but it also supports groups in being able to understand and discuss our own identities as well as other perspectives. We will process the content from the first two sessions in our affinity group spaces. It is suggested that if you didn’t attend, you should at least watch Dr. Amante’s keynote video to provide context for the discussion.

Cambridge Digs DEEP is an initiative launched by Mayor Marc McGovern and Councilor Sumbul Siddiqui to engage the community in conversations about equity, privilege, diversity, inclusion, and race in a series of forums and workshops starting November 2018 and continuing through 2019. Mayor McGovern and Councillor Siddiqui’s Offices have partnered with Dr. Darnisa Amante, CEO of the Disruptive Equity Education Project (DEEP) to co-design and facilitate these conversations. DEEP is an organization focused on changing mindsets around equity and dismantling systemic oppression and racism.
