The Bite-Sized Learning events are designed by MCN’s Greater Minnesota team to keep us connected across the state. While the topics are chosen to meet the needs of Greater Minnesota, all are welcome here. Each event will have a short presentation along with plenty of time for networking and discussion on the designated topic.

This Bite- Sized Learning session will be covering Anti-Discrimination Advocacy and how to best utilize our voice.

The session will go over the following topics:

-The “why” behind the perpetuated existence of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation of humans, especially those of marginalized communities
-Applicable discrimination policy, grievance steps, and claims submission awareness
-Protected classes under the Minnesota Human Rights Act
-Proactive actionable next steps towards compassionate accountability
-Key terms and definitions to bridge cultural and bureaucratic communications

Bring your questions and expertise on the topic- with our cameras and microphones on, we can stay connected, learn, and support one another.

RSVP for the event on Zoom.
