BREAKOUT 1Each person shares out on their own biases. Please feel comfortable sharing a specific situation, one of your own, where you learned from your mistake or may now realize a statement was a microaggression.
Sorry I have to jump off for another call today. See you for the next one.
salad bowl instead of melting pot..... I like that. Or an "American Stew"
What is a helpful way to think about the difference between race and culture?
Examples of "standing up"?
Good podcast from Scene on Radio - "Seeing White"
REAKOUT 2 (5 minutes)Each person shares out one way they will stand up to bias. Please consider where you feel comfortable standing up to bias now, in the workplace or with family.
