Wendesday/Thursday Update!

It was another beautiful day on campus! Delegates finished Round 2 of workshops (see descriptions of Creative Problem Solving and GroupME from the previous post) and began Round 3:

Public Speaking: Delegates identified and practiced effective public speaking strategies.

Diversity: Delegates explored and identified different types of diversity, learned about informational diversity and its impact on cultural competency, and utilized courageous conversations as a tool to raise the level of cultural competency.

Advocacy: Delegates explored the difference between equity and equality, learned the importance of advocating with perspective, developed and advocacy plan, and reflected on the significance of advocacy.

Delegates continued to make progress in their tuning groups and in their region meetings. and Reality projects are close to completion.

Wednesday night’s activity was an MLW favorite – Messy Games Night! On Thursday, we were treated to a talent show with amazing performances from our delegates including poetry, music, dance, and more.

Friday will entail the final rotation of Round 3 workshops plus the culmination of the Reality projects. Of ┬ácourse, everyone is looking forward to tonight’s dance!
