The Division for Equity and Inclusion at the University of New Mexico hosts a critical dialogue on diversity and race/racism by internationally renowned master diversity trainer and filmmaker, Lee Mun Wah, on Thursday, Feb. 4 beginning at 8 a.m. in SUB Ballroom C. The all-day event is made possible through the generous support of partners CNM and APS.
For more than 25 years, Lee Mun Wah was a resource specialist and counselor in the San Francisco Unified School District. Mun Wah is the executive director of Stirfry Seminars & Consulting, a diversity training company that provides educational tools and workshops on issues pertaining to cross-cultural communication and awareness, mindful facilitation and conflict mediation techniques. Thousands of individuals from government, social services agencies, corporations and educational institutions have participated in his workshop and other training opportunities.
It is Mun Wah’s belief that we cannot wait until tomorrow for some charismatic leader to appear, who will bring us all together. Everyone must take a stand and personally participate in the important journey of confronting fear and beginning a conversation not only with those we love but also with those we have been taught to fear.
Thanks to the support of UNM partners, CNM and APS, the event is free to representatives from UNM, CNM and APS. For all others, the fee is $30 (cash or credit card) at the door.
