When exploring issues of diversity and inclusion in higher education and specifically in public engagement, it is important to consider creating inclusive spaces of dialogue. Based on the University of Michigan’s intergroup dialogue model, this workshop will explore strategies to enhance authentic and inclusive dialogues among collaborative partnerships. Particular attention will be paid to understanding concepts of privileged and targeted identities and how this impacts collaborations. This workshop will advocate moving from the “cult of the expert” model to a model that honors many voices and perspectives. It is through dialogue that diverse perspectives and voices can be heard. Dialogue creates a space for this form of empowered collaboration. Participants will engage in activities such as the social identity wheel as well as gain valuable strategies for creating empowered collaborations through dialogue.
