Pitt Johnstown New student orientation: Nurture Your Nature with Matt Glowacki

Matt’s “Nurture Your Nature” presentation is an inclusive identity event that welcomes everyone and helps them better understand who they are, why they are, and what they want to be. His revolutionary approach to storytelling conceptualizes difference into common familiar struggles and builds empathy amongst different groups of people. Through the visualization of ones’ Intersectional Diversity, Social Identity, and Code-Switching presentation, the model illustrates how the different groups people are inherently members of, choose to be involved with, and how individuals present themselves in different environments all contribute to how someone sees themselves and is seen by others. The most important take away from the model is: “Your identity is simply the story you tell yourself about yourself.”

Dial-In Information

Students should use ZOOM meeting code 918 9465 9214 and the provided password.
