  • Do not overestimate your own competency. Life experience alone is not enough to become a diversity expert.
  • Broaden students’ perspective on privilege. A broad spectrum of topics that can reveal differences.
  • Demonstrate authenticity — and grace. Making cultural faux pas is an opportunity for teaching and showing grace.

  • Focus on solutions.  Awareness encourages motivation toward solutions.
