Especially for discussions requiring trust and vulnerability, storytelling creates safe spaces for open conversation, connection, and exploration of the identities that make us unique. We, the co-facilitators, will each share our personal stories and describe how creating and telling our stories fosters empathy and builds community. Attendees leave with a roadmap to create and share their own diverse stories. We discuss the importance of being a receptive listener, as well as determining when and to whom a story should be told.

Co-facilitators:  Susanna Harris, Founder of PhD Balance/UNC PhD Candidate and Malini Basdeo, CAPS Fellow/University of Hartford PhD Candidate

Snacks will be served!
