Thania’s Kisima Offering:

Communities of Inclusion

Exclusion is a key source of conflict, injustice, and inequality. We live in environments where explicit or implicit messages and prejudices of race, class, age, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, disability and other differences exclude people, make them feel vulnerable, and limit their personal, social, political, and economic potential.

So how can we celebrate diversity and move from exclusive to more inclusive environments in our families and our communities, and in societies writ large? In this workshop, Thania will lead us into reflection and action oriented discussion about how we can become the drivers of the change we want to see.

Where: Baraza Hub on Thursday 21st October.
