Keeping it Real

Anheuser-Busch Leadership Room, Spellmann Center

Using the Keep it Real game, this powerful participatory session challenges students, faculty, and staff to examine their own biases and work together to learn how to achieve inclusive excellence. The goals of this program are to help foster a culture of understanding, support, and acceptance within the campus community and to create an inclusive environment whereby all members feel respected and welcomed. Leslie Robinson, psychotherapist and creator of the Keep it Real game, will present the session. It is an interactive communication board game that provides a safe space for people to explore and share their beliefs, feelings, memories, reflections, struggles, and dreams out loud. The Keep It Real Diverse game is being utilized to build bridges and connections across differences by approximately 1,000 colleges and universities, 200 Boys & Girls Clubs and youth programs, and numerous organizations.
