CrashCourse group members developed a project which aims to create an environment that will help spark open dialogue about diversity issues in South Carolina among young professionals, build a network among the participants, and provide the “Crash Course” tools to participants, in hopes they will continue the legacy within their organizations.

Group members will invite 40 young professionals to view the feature film “Crash” in a small local theatre in the Midlands and follow up with round table discussions led by the group members and whole group discussions led by a volunteer professional (diversity trained) mediator.

“CrashCourse” will be piloted in Columbia in January 2011, followed by sessions in Charleston and Walterboro.
