Episode 5: Religion and Spirituality

SUMMARY: In this episode, Nick discusses the role religion and spirituality can play in supporting DEI work. As a member of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship on campus, Nick shares how religious and spiritual organizations can be a source of community, comfort, and inspiration for social change. Victoria delves into this conversation with questions such as: what kind of resources did your school have for navigating spiritual life? Do you think schools adequately provide resources for students with different cultural backgrounds and belief systems? How does religion affect your identity and the way you approach social issues?
