The Skin I'm In: An Exploration of the Multi-Ethnic Experience
This presentation will explore the experiences of belonging to two or more ethnic backgrounds. We will discuss the intersectionality of identity based on self-perception and the perceptions of others; and discuss implications these perceptions have on those we work with and for. The Skin I'm In: An Exploration of the Multi-Ethnic Experience will be based on the presenter’s interactions with balancing intersecting identities. This presentation discusses racial and ethnic identities, as well as other intersectional identities individuals hold; will cover examples of oppression and privilege, why it's important to be aware of perceptions and what people can do to be more proactive about their perceived assumptions; and talks about experiences of isolation and not belonging based on identities, which is done to help others understand how important inclusivity is.
