The Division for Equity and Inclusion will be hosting a critical dialogue on diversity and race/racism by internationally renowned master diversity trainer and filmmaker, Lee Mun Wah. For more than 25 years he was a resource specialist and counselor in the San Francisco Unified School Distict. Lee Mun Wah is the Executive Director of Stirfry Seminars & Consulting, a diversity training company that provides educational tools and workshops on issues pertaining to cross-cultural communication and awareness, mindful facilitation, and conflict mediation techniques. Thousands of individuals from government, social services agencies, corporations and educational institutions have participated in his workshop and other training opportunities.
It is Lee Mun Wah’s belief that we cannot wait until tomorrow for some charismatic leader to appear who will bring us all together. We each must take a stand and personally participate in this important journey of confronting our fears and beginning a conversation not only with those we love but also with those we have been taught to fear. We cannot continue being separate and unequal without there being a cost to each and every generation. Our survival and the very future of our children depend on all of us embracing our differences as well as our mutuality. If we can accomplish this in our lifetime, we can then look back and know that we have found a way to live together authentically and harmoniously, using and honoring all of our gifts and special contributions. To Lee Mun Wah, that is the true meaning of multiculturalism.
