Attendees will participate in three different workshops:
Managing Unconscious Bias (October 19): This workshop is designed to increase awareness of bias and to explore how conscious and unconscious bias impacts communication and decision-making when we interact with individuals and groups that are different from us. Participants will also explore the effects of bias in everyday situations and determine alternative behaviors that stop bias in its tracks.
Race, Racism, and White Supremacy (November 16): This workshop explores the origins of race, white supremacy, and racism. We begin to discuss and how white supremacy and racism continue to manifest in our cities and towns.
How to Change Someone's Mind (December 7): In this workshop participants will learn about beliefs and behaviors of folks and how to navigate racist comments and the complexities of people’s beliefs.
Workshop leaders offer a variety of tools and teaching methods including graphic facilitation, visual imagery, theoretical models, small group dialogue, and kinesthetic interaction, to create a dynamic space that supports all types of learners.
