Comfortable and uncomfortable identities
The Diversity Wheel from Johns Hopkins Medical Center includes the following types of diversities: age, gender identity or expression, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, mental and physical ability, race and ethnicity, education, political beliefs, family, organization role, language and communication skills, income, religion, appearance, and work experience.
For this step, please reflect on which identities you are most comfortable discussing? Which give you the most joy? Conversely, which identities are you least comfortable discussing and involve the most pain?
Which of your identities do you question the most? Is there an identity you often need to defend?
Please share your thoughts and reflections in the comments and then join the discussion with other learners.
