MSC Diversity Workshops
We host a number of workshops throughout the year, each having a unique aspect whether it caters to first-year MSC'ers or to top MSC student leaders.
Aggie Business 100
MSC Diversity brings three to five representatives from the Aggie Business 100 event in the Fall to speak to MSC Diversity and other MSC organizations and to share their experiences in the world of business. This program is a unique opportunity to gain insight into how what we are doing now as student leaders will help us greatly as we graduate college and look to embark on a successful career.
MSC Leadership Workshop- Diversity
In association with MSC Human Resources, Diversity hosts the third and final MSC Leadership Workshop program in the Spring. This is an opportunity for us to bring in a dynamic and engaging speaker to help our first year MSC'ers understand more about the role of diversity in the MSC, on campus, and everywhere.
This past year, we invited Dr. Laqueta Wright of Richland College to help our first year members understand more about how everyone's background is important in shaping who they are and that these various backgrounds and stories are something to be learned from and valued!
We plan on hosting two panels this year for MSC students, one Guess Who's Gay? Panel and a Disability Services Panel. Both of these panels will help MSC'ers learn about communities of students here at Texas A&M who are often underrepresented or even misrepresented, so that we can work towards promoting a more inclusive and welcoming environment in the MSC for all of our members!
MSC Unity Dinner
The MSC Unity Dinner is an opportunity to bring together the leaders of all MSC organizations for a night of discussion, food and learning. We invite a speaker to come and help us to consider all that we know about diversity and how we react to our own stereotyping and then to teach us how to move past those stereotypes so that we can learn from and interact with a variety of people.
We also facilitate activities during dinner that help us to learn more about how we all have initial stereotypes applied to people, events, groups, etc. but it is the actions we take after we realize we hold those stereotypes that matters. Very deep.
