On March 29, 2014, Illinois Wesleyan University hosted its first Pride Summit. The
theme of the event was titled Identity: Who I am on the Inside and Outside.
The day started out with breakfast followed by an activity called What I Wouldn't
Sell, Trade, or Give Away. Participants brought an item following this criteria and
presented it to the group.
The next activity was called My Style, Your Style, Our Style. This activity helped
us all connect as we realized our similarities and differences.
We took a break for lunch then participated in the Diversity Shuffle. The Diversity
Shuffle allowed us to reexamine where we have privilege and what this means. A small
group discussion was held following this event.
Finally, a panel of alumni spoke about being LGBTQIA and out in the workplace.
