IMH Diversity Tenets in Action: The Power of Our Own Storytelling
In this session, Danita and Rob will guide us through our 2022 DEI journey. The discussion and sharing will center around the following reflective questions.
Where am I on my journey?*
- Which of the Harris Diversity Tenets have resonated with you the most?
- To what degree, or in what ways, have you employed any of the Harris Diversity Tenets, (personally & institutionally)? What has been the results?
- Which of the Harris Diversity Tenets have you found most challenging, (personally & institutionally)?
- How will you continue to embrace these tenets? What support would you appreciate, (personally & institutionally)? What support can you give to others, (personally & institutionally)?
RIAIMH’s six-session Community Conversation Series (CCS) 2022 is designed to review the Irving Harris Foundation's Diversity-Informed Infant Mental Health Tenets as applied to early relational health and create opportunities to explore these principles “in action” within RI’s community of practice. Each of the 6 sessions will be facilitated by Rob Jones and Danita Roberts, who will be joined by community partners to illustrate the power of the work through storytelling. Our discussions will center around issues of race, power, equity, and belonging to help deepen awareness about ourselves and our community, and to guide intentional change within our IECMH practices, programs, and policies.
