UNITE GBM #2: EMBRACING EMPATHY

Friday, November 20th, 2020

6 - 7 pm CST via Zoom

UNITE's second GBM, Embracing Identity, seeks to dive into the concept of identity through heavy student-led discussion and reflection on one's own experiences. We hope to discuss the ideas relating to social and personal identity and create a welcoming environment for students to discuss the ins and outs of what they consider their own identity. The main goal is to find and compare similarities in identities not in experiences but in similar values we share with other students. Through these meaningful discussions and interactions, we seek to find a social identity that unites all of us not only at UNITE but at IIT as well.
