We are in a moment where racial consciousness is high and discussions of racial justice are arguably more common than ever. Yet the mind sciences show us that there are a critical set of unconscious perceptions driving choices and responses in ways that may belie our stated and even consciously believed goals of racial equity.
Join us as we explore how race and racism impact the way we view our work, our workplace and our communities.
If you attended the session on implicit bias featuring john a. powell in November, this will give you an opportunity to deepen how to apply that knowledge to your work, however the November session is not a pre-requisite. This series will continue in the fall with a workshop featuring Julie Nelson of the Government Alliance on Race and Equity.
- How our implicit biases impact our decision-making
- What steps can be taken to counter these biases individually and institutionally as an important aspect of grantmaking with a racial equity lens
- How to communicate effectively on issues of race without triggering racial anxieties
- Alexis McGill Johnson, Executive Director and Co-Founder, Perception Institute
- Lori Villarosa, Executive Director, Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity
