The 12th annual Diversity Monologues will be back in person this spring! Diversity Monologues is an event put on by the Unity Multicultural Education Center (UMEC) to empower the voices of GU students who have a passion for diversity and social justice. Performers will be sharing stories and personal experiences that are framed around this year’s theme, Unbreakable. These performances often serve as a reminder to many of us that the experiences we face in our personal lives are not always the norm and we must be comfortable with hearing the uncomfortable.  
Recently, the Diversity Monologues event received the Ignatian Medal for Outstanding Commitment to Diversity and Social Justice Award. This award is handed out by the Jesuit Association of Student Personnel Administrators, representing all 28 Jesuit institutions of higher education in the U.S. Such recognition serves as a testament to the hard work past student performers have put into developing their pieces, as well as the work of past MC’s such as Nikita Oliver, Gabriel Teodros, and Christian Paige, to name a few.  
The student committee organizing Diversity Monologues this year includes Asha Douglas, Josiah Saifoloi, Jacquelyn Gaither, Marianne Nacanaynay, and Dominic Pe Benito. They, along with Program Manager Tere Graham, are all working very hard and diligently to make sure that the event runs smoothly as we transition back to having our speakers perform in front of a live audience.
