The 10 Cs: A Model of Diversity Awareness and Social Change

General Material

This document is a self-inventory describing the “10 Cs” model. The “10 Cs” is a two-part model that includes the 5 Cs of Awareness (Color, Culture, Class, Character, and Context) and the 5 Cs of Change (Confidence, Courage, Commitment, Conflict, and Community) in an attempt to bring together as many parts of the whole as possible. Based on the premise that we must start with an inventory of ourselves and examine our own experiences to more effectively confront issues of personal and societal oppression, this self-inventory is an essential first step in the longer journey toward social change.
