In recent weeks, many have asked what they can do in addressing systemic racism and bias. It begins with self-reflection and examination of our own potential blind spots and needed areas of growth. In this short workshop, participants will reflect on the ways that individual, interpersonal, and systemic oppressions connect in order to understand the role that individual bias can play. The presentation will end with potential tips and resources for continuing education beyond the workshop setting. Sam Becker, social justice education specialist with the Multicultural Student Center, will be the presenter for this event.

No registration is required and all are welcome. On the day of this session, please use the above Webex link to join.
