Creating Welcoming Environments
Jason Collins, former NBA Player
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?
