How Bias Hurts: Understanding & Challenging Bias in our Communities
This interactive workshop will address how bias manifests in our learning and working spaces and can lead to harm. Participants will be encouraged to engage in discussion and share strategies and best practices for better understanding and challenging bias. Participants will also leave with tools and resources to apply and continue their learning. All knowledge levels are welcome and valued.
