Understanding and Addressing the Roots of Cultural, Institutional, Structural, Systemic, Personal, Interpersonal Racism and Implicit Bias (Knowledge and Skills Building Intensive), a multi-hour capacity building and intensive group training and program focused on creating and deepening personal awareness, disrupting bias, increasing and deepening awareness of institutional - structural - and systemic inequity through the lens’ of race, gender, sex, and other intersections; and applying information to address disparate treatment of persons and organizational outcomes.
