As a result of this activity, participants will be able to: 1. "Discover similarities and differences between and among people. 2. Identify those differences that require little effort to discover and those that require extra effort. 3. Identify how assumed similarities or differences can restrict our use of the resources and/or opportunities other people can provide us" (Stringer & Cassiday, 2003, p. 101).
