Student Workshop Co-Sponsored by the Center for Intercultural Engagement and the Social Justice Resource Center

How does reckoning with our own complex identities and lived experiences prepare us to engage more empathetically and effectively with others in the work of social change? As a social investor, human rights advocate, systems disruptor, and changemaker, Lynn Zovighian problem solves from a worldview shaped by Lebanese, Armenian, Italian, and Palestinian ancestry and a multi-generational family history of displacement due to genocide and war. As a child, she was raised in several countries and exposed to many faith traditions that have shaped her spirituality. Drawing on her experience designing and implementing social change projects with collaborators throughout the Middle East, Lynn will illustrate how working across complex identities has presented challenges and unleashed opportunities. Her personal stories will be a starting point for students to reflect on the identities they bring to the social change table and how those identities may influence how they perceive others and show up in the world.

This event is part of the Social Impact Lab's weeklong series From Boston to Beirut: Reimagining Social Change in the Middle East.

All events except the student workshops will be recorded and available on the Social Impact Lab website for those who are unable to participate synchronously.
