Everybody's biased—even nice people like you. We all harbor unconscious assumptions about people who are different from us that get in the way of our good intentions and keep us from working together harmoniously and effectively.

So in an increasingly diverse and globalized world, what does respecting difference actually require?

Join bias experts (and biracial couple) Tiffany Jana and Matthew Freeman for an hour-long webcast where you will learn how to identify your personal points of privilege, make genuine connections with people who aren’t like you, and figure out how to break down social barriers across a spectrum of differences (race, religion, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and more).

Tiffany and Matthew will discuss hidden biases and show how they arise from our histories and cloud our perceptions.

What You Will Learn

Tiffany and Matthew will use vivid and fun (yes, fun!) stories to help you become open to encountering people, cultures, and ideas outside our usual comfort zone. Make sure to tune in!

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
