The concept of community at a large institution like Clemson University can be a complex one. GOODTalk is meant to be a space to explore community, identity, and values by bringing together university graduate assistants, staff, and faculty. This 10 week dialogue series enables participants to build cross-campus relationships, learn from new stories and perspectives, and explore topics around inclusion, equity, and organizational change.
GOODTalk participants will:
- Gain KNOWLEDGE on current issues related to social identity and inclusion
- Cultivate AWARENESS of social identities for themselves and others
- Develop SKILLS necessary for working in diverse communities
- Build capacity to take ACTION for positive change at Clemson and beyond
Spring 2020 GOODTalk will run from the week of February 3rd to the week of April 13th (with the week of April 20th held in case a make-up is necessary).
Applications are due by Friday, January 24th! Apply now! Applicants will be notified of their participation by no later than Wednesday, January 29th.
Identity and inclusion are complex topics, and delving into them can offer new insights and deeper understanding. GOODTalk 2.0 is meant to be a space for those who have completed GOODTalk to explore a particular social identity in greater depth. This group of university graduate assistants, staff, and faculty will spend 10 weeks exploring one of three social identity areas: Race & Ethnicity; Gender & Sexuality; or Worldview, Religion, & Spirituality. This dialogue series will enable participants to build cross-campus relationships, learn from new stories and perspectives, and explore topics around inclusion, equity, and organizational change. While the focus will be on the selected social identities, intersectionality and systems of power, privilege, and marginalization at large will play a role.
Spring 2019 GOODTalk 2.0 will run from the week of September 16th to the week of December 2nd (with the week of December 9th held in case a make-up is necessary).
Applications are due by Monday, September 9th. If you have participated in GOODTalk, and would like to engage in the GOODTalk 2.0 experience, apply now! Applicants will be notified of their participation by no later than September 13th.
