Beyond Diversity 101: Micro-Inequities, Implicit Bias, and Moving toward Equity

Tuesday, June 08, 10:00 AM - Tuesday, June 08, 2021, 12:00 PM
Tuesday, June 08, 2021, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
VirtualLive/Online
Fee: $45 for MCN members / $65 for nonmembers
Many of us have been involved with diversity training that focuses on cultural difference and respecting all perspectives. While this is a good start, we cannot move toward true equity in our workplaces, organizations, and personal relationships until we address historical and institutional inequality. In order to address the myriad ways that certain people are marginalized based on social identities such as race, gender, disability, religion, class, sexual orientation, etc., every one of us needs to understand our own identities, how we all demonstrate bias that is often unconscious, and how we are all capable of moving toward equity.
