Champions Chain Reaction

Champions Chain Reaction

On August 8th, The WIE CHAMPIONS held a "Chain Reaction" where each person shared the things in his life that formulated his initial prejudices toward people not like them and what they've done to change this attitude. The purpose of the "Chain Reaction" is for members of the group to get to know each other better and "get ahead of the curve thus preventing what happened in Charlottesville and other areas in the country".  Comments from participants were things like "It made me feel uncomfortable but I found out that there were others who've had similar experiences", "Being able to share my experiences made me realize how far I've come toward being more acceptable of others", "I now have a bond and an appreciation of others of different cultures".

The 2+ hour session was moderated by Gwen Garnett, WIE COO and Program Coordinator.  WIE's consultants are experts in conducting authentic and meaningful conversations that build trust across race and culture.

The Champions are the men's affiliate of WIE and support its mission — "Building Trust Across Race and Culture".  The group meets for breakfast the last Wednesday of the month from 7:30 - 8:30 at The Mayobird on East Boulevard.
