Interactive diversity event draws interest

Continue reading below

The Sharon Pluralism Network recently hosted the first diversity event for adults, modeled after its Teen Speak-Out program at Sharon High School. The Community Speak-Out on Feb. 9 drew 55 guests who, along with 12 facilitators, participated in exercises to help them interact with people they might not otherwise meet due to cultural and religious differences, according to Beth Hoke, executive director. They shared a lunch of food from several cultures. Hoke said in an interview that the goal of the event was to develop greater understanding and appreciation among groups in Sharon. “Trying to support people to engage with people unlike themselves is an ongoing process,” she said. Pluralism, she said, aims to turn the “melting pot” of assimilation into more of a salad bowl or mosaic in which people retain their identity while interacting with others. The organization looks forward to hosting more such events, she said.
