Event Description

Discrimination comes in many forms and persists on many levels in our society. This is despite efforts to promote inclusion and enact civil rights legislation. Discrimination, whether subtle or overt, continues to impact race relations in our country? and the experience of Students of Color in our classrooms. This seminar will help you better define concepts like bias, prejudice, and discrimination. You’ll explore the nature of implicit bias and stereotype threat, and discover tools to minimize bias in the classroom and in the workplace. Participants are welcome to bring a lunch to this discussion
