Session 2 of Welcoming Communities – an Online Course of Exploratory Discussions
March 19, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDTFree
This is the 2nd session of a weekly, 6-session online course of exploratory discussions on the topic of “Welcoming Communities” that the Interactivity Foundation is facilitating in partnership with the Diversity Relations Council and the Center for Lifelong Learning at Leisure World in Silver Spring, Maryland. In this course, registered participants from Leisure World meet weekly online via Zoom.
The six class discussions for this course are participatory, interactive, and additive—they build on the ideas discussed and developed in prior sessions by the participants. In this 2nd session, participants will expand their initial exploration to the meaning and ideas related to “welcoming communities” and consider questions like the following, as well as their different answers.
- What has made you feel welcomed or included (or not) in a community?
- What could it mean to be a “welcoming community”?
- What are some of the features or aspects of a welcoming community?
- What values or goals might shape our thinking about welcoming communities?
