This conference focuses on racial identity development (Black, White, and other people of color), ethnic identity development (African American, European American, and other ethnic groups), and gender and sexual orientation, from infancy through adult maturity. An understanding of this development is necessary to understand the dynamics of multi-ethnic and multi-racial groups in the United States. The workshop embraces an anti oppressive and multi cultural perspective.
• Develop a working understanding of the notions of racial identity, ethnic, and sexual identity.
• Compare the stages of identity development for different ethnic, racial, and cultural groups.
• Construct a picture of the way identity operates in the everyday adjustment of people of color and other oppressed groups.
• Recognize how racial and cultural identity experience can influence interpersonal relations in corporate and educational settings.
