Selected to further our diversity, equity, and inclusion work, the following TED talks are offered to help us reflect on and engage in conversation of how we understand ourselves and others.

  • The videos will play from this page.  
  • Use the associated hyperlinked text to read the corresponding transcripts. 
  • Access to a transcript may help you select your sentence, phrase, and word for our discussion in the fall.

You are invited (and encouraged!) to add your sentence, phrase, and word in the comment section below as you watch and reflect. (Please be sure to include the title of the talk in your comment.) We will be excited to continue the conversation together in the fall using the Connect-Extend-Challenge protocol.
