Creating Welcoming Environments

Jason Collins, former NBA Player

All-American, Stanford

Discussion Questions:

  • When you walk into a room or you're around a new group of people, how do want to feel?

  • What are some examples of things that might make someone feel uncomfortable or unwelcome?

  • What are some ways that you might make different types of people feel welcome?

Ways to Practice:

  • Pick a group of people who are different than you in some way and come up with two ways you could show acceptance through your language or behavior.

  • Try to notice examples of people around you using language or acting in ways that are unwelcoming. Can you speak up in that moment?
