About the Event: This presentation will provide an overview of how our implicit biases can limit our ability to have diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in our workplace atmosphere as well as our personal lives. The overview will be followed by an interactive discussion on how we can work to disrupt our biases and work together to eliminate structural racism and exclusion in every sphere.
