WELCOMING DIVERSITY / BUILDING COMMUNITY
ONE DAY WORKSHOP
IN PHILADELPHIA AREA 9 AM- 4 PM

Sunday, May 18, 2003-Camden, NJ (Rutgers U)

NCBI’s Ideas:
Politeness, guilt, embarrassment, and lack of knowledge keep us from reaching out and really getting to know people who are different from ourselves.

Welcoming diversity requires taking risks and being willing to make mistakes and accept mistakes made by others.

Listening to other people’s stories can change hearts, attitudes, and behaviors.

We’re empowered when we learn to respond to oppressive jokes, comments & slurs in ways that shift attitudes.

Discrimination is serious but getting rid of it doesn’t have to be.

Every Person and Every Issue Counts!

Who can benefit?
Members of community groups, businesses, religious congregations, schools, and governmental organizations have all used NCBI ideas and skills to make these groups more inclusive and effective.

What is NCBI?
The National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) is an international non-profit organization. We are dedicated to ending the mistreatment of all groups.

NCBI aims to develop a new kind of leader: one who initiates diversity programs, takes principled stands, can enter the emotional heat of groups in conflict and
build bridges, and one who models being an ally for all groups.

NCBI trains leaders in the skills of prejudice reduction, resolution of conflicts between groups, and coalition building.

About the workshops:
In the one-day workshop, participants do a series of activities which build upon each other. The activities empower individuals of all ages and backgrounds to take leadership in building inclusive communities.

The one-day workshop may stand alone, or it may serve – when followed with NCBI’s Train the Trainer Seminar – as the foundation for establishing a leadership team
to conduct similar prejudice reduction programs.

Fee includes continental breakfast, lunch
Some financial aid is available-Ask early.
