Raising HOPE Mentor Lunch Program

November 21 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Context of Difference: Becoming Culturally Aware

The saying “WE SEE THE WORLD not as it is, but as we are,” has been attributed to many sources-Anais Nin, Charles Lamb, and the Talmud, among others. As a Mentor, it is vital to be aware that no two people-including you and your mentee-see the world through precisely the same lens. Too often we make meaning through “difference filters” that blind us to our own biases and lead us to misunderstand people who are communicating with us through their own difference filters. Join us as we reflect and recognize our own difference filters and how they impact our mentoring relationships.

Amy Summers, Program Director of Raising HOPE presents this program for Mentors. She is an experienced facilitator of women’s empowerment workshops, meditation and stress reduction classes, and conscious communication counseling. She has a degree in Women’s Studies with a concentration in Workshop Development and experience as an entrepreneur, as the former owner of Transformations Workshop Center and Gallery in Amherst MA, and currently operating Aquoga ® Aquatic exercise and adapted yoga classes in Ulster County.
