Drake University Business Link is presenting a workshop that enables participants to truly experience — and not just talk about — the awareness and skills necessary for successful diversity work. The workshop, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Wednesday, April 12, in Olmsted Center, 29th Street and University Avenue.


The co-founders of The Circle Project, Patricia Digh and David Robinson, will facilitate the workshop. The Circle Project provides innovative learning experiences through story, theatre and other experiences.


Digh has published more than 75 articles on diversity and intercultural issues and traveled and worked in more than 60 countries. Robinson has extensive experience in theater, visual arts, creativity and education innovation. His 20 years of professional directing experience help him design exceptional educational programs for academic and corporate environments.


The workshop is free but seating is limited. To register online, visit www.cbpa.drake.edu/businesslink. For more information, call professor Delaney J. Kirk, director of Drake Business Link, at (515) 271-3724.
