Answer the questions below based on the TED video, “Inclusion, Exclusion, Illusion and Collusion” featuring Helen Turnbull, as well as your social identities, values, beliefs and behaviors. 

1. Think about a time when your cultural eye has been less “innocent.”Were you exhibiting one of the four faces presented in the video (Professional face, Politically Correct, Curious Face, Irritated Customer Face) or another face? Please describe.
2. What were you thinking? What biases, prejudices or assumptions were activated?
3. How can you expand the boundaries of your “in-group,” and what critical thinking, cultural and emotional  skills will you need to develop?
4. How would your “best inclusive self” show up at DePaul, work, or in day-to-day interactions with people of other cultures?
