In this presentation on Dimensions of Diversity we will discuss perspectives and key definitions in DEI. We will also touch on the four different levels or dimensions of diversity to really help us define our own Identity. This will really inform a brief discussion on how we show up to others who might not be like us. Our identity is important as we make our way in the world and environment in which we live. Learn about how simple things like where you were born and even how you learn contribute to your identity and how those might come across to others.
