Understanding What Makes You, You


January 23, 2006

MESA, AZ - Influences of your past - be it parental, environmental or societal - help shape who you are today as well as your future. Your "life paths" influence how you respond to pain or expressions of emotions, your expectations of yourself and others, and your reactions to others.

Understanding your life's paths as well as learning about what others may have experienced because of their cultural background or gender will help you see yourself and others in a new light.

Through stories, you will learn about people from different cultural backgrounds in a two-part, interactive workshop, titled "Facing Your Future: A Woman's and A Man's Journey," presented by internationally renowned organizational development and diversity consultants Dr. Anita Sanchez & Dr. Kit Tennis.

The free workshop is open to the public and will be held from 8:30 to noon, Feb. 10, at Arizona State University at the Polytechnic campus, Student Union Cooley Ballroom A. You are welcome to come to both or just one part of the workshop. Part I (8:30 - 10:15) will explore the journeys of women from many cultures, and Part II (10:30 - Noon) will explore the journeys of men from many cultures.

This program will increase understanding and appreciation of:

  • Your personal life journey
  • The journeys of your gender
  • The journeys of the other gender and other cultures
  • The future challenges your journey may hold
  • The richness of life paths in a multicultural community

The two-part workshop is part of the Provost Program Series, sponsored by the Campus Environment Team and the Student Union at Arizona State University's Polytechnic campus.
