Dine & Dialogues

Women's History Month & Gender Issues: Thursday, Mar 14th, 4-6pm in LBA-003

Have you ever wondered about the beliefs and values of others? What truly defines a person's identity? The opinions of issues other than your own? Come and join the Diversity Programmers at the Dine and Dialogue Series! This session acknowledges Women's History Month and deals with gender issues. At this session, we will be answering questions such as: "How have gender roles impacted your life?"and "Do you think women are underrepresented in any aspects of modern American life?" For this specific dialogue session, our very own UW Bothell faculty, Dr. Kari Lerum and Sam Al-Khoury will be leading the discussion. Remember, that not only will we be providing great dialogue but free dinner as well!


The purpose of these series is to provide safe spaces for dialogue about topics regarding the intersections of identity. By the end of the session, participants will come out feeling more culturally enriched and self-aware than they were before through the use of storytelling. Participants will share their own personal stories, beliefs, and values. As a result, attendees will:


  • Compare and contrast cultural differences and similarities
  • Appreciate individual differences and universal similarities
  • Value individual differences
  • Acknowledge that others have a perspective on issues other than their own
