“The Nordic countries have a proud history of firmly embracing the complexities of gender equality. With this common voice of urgency, you are invited to a space where bold, creative and distinctive female voices are examined, amplified and celebrated.”
During five weeks between February 2 and March 3, you can watch five films from across the Nordic countries, meet their directors and host five conversations with Nordic and American filmmakers. This is all made possible by the Women In Film and Television International (WIFTI) organization.
Themes range from inconvenient women to borderless filmmaking, from women who define their own reality to those making our blood boil. Meet Sundance-winner Ísold Uggadóttir, May el-Toukhy, Oscar-contenders Zaida Bergroth and Maria Søhdahl and Samí-director Suvi West; award-winning actresses Sofia Helin, Trine Dyrholm; and many more.

The announcement that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the electoral and popular vote for the next US President is, for many, a highly-awaited and anticipated moment. For others, it’s an acute loss.
Our most important work, right now, is to put in motion the practices and programs to create cohesion, build community and help leaders reach across difference.
That said, it’s become dangerous to talk about politics at work even though the political divide now more than ever inhibits positive connection, at work, at home, and in our communities. This divide threatens progress towards more diverse and equitable workplaces.
Now, amidst this divisiveness, is the opportunity for workplaces to double down and equip their leaders on how to bridge the divide. There is no time to waste.
Be clear on why diversity, equity, and inclusion work matters, especially right now
Push your inclusive leadership skills for today’s unique needs
Explore how to narrow divides and speak to divergent groups

Campus Ministry invites students to participate in an Alternative Spring Break experience March 15-19, 2021, offering the students an opportunity to look deeper at justice issues in the Twin Cities and surrounding area and engage in meaningful, relationship-centered volunteer work.
The justice issues will be examined through several experiences in the Twin Cities and reflection and sharing in order for participants to process their experience communally and individually. These experiences include:
MN Council of Churches Sacred Sites Tour, exploring MN history through a Native lens by visiting sacred sites and through storytelling.
A presentation and activities by the University of MN Mapping Prejudice project, exploring housing inequity due to racial disparities.
A presentation and activities by the Lutheran Social Service of MN (LSS-MN) Advocacy team, providing practical and current information on ways to be advocates.
Activities are subject to change due to COVID-19 protocols.
For volunteer opportunities, students will partner with LSS-MN at Supported Living Homes (SLH), known as ‘group homes.’ SLH provides a family home setting to no more than 4 community members living with differing abilities.
Students will serve in small groups at several homes. Activities may include yard work, building maintenance, meal prep, and social activities alongside those who live in the home. Volunteer work will focus on the relational aspect of volunteering, rather than the actual jobs accomplished. Volunteer activities are designed to help volunteers and residents see one another as individuals rather than ‘other.’
This ASB has been approved to count as an Augsburg Experience. Please indicate on the registration form if you would like that option.
Cost: $25, including the required book & lunch each of the 5 days. Please fill out the registration form & turn in your fee to Janice Dames in the Campus Ministry office.
