    Many organizations have strong diversity and inclusion initiatives as their commitment to a more open and accepting environment.  Now it is time to take a deeper look at the issues and explore how implicit bias works, how it can create inequitable structures and what actions organizations can take to eliminate it.

    In this interactive session we hope to accomplish the follow objectives:

    ·      Understand the concept of implicit bias.

    ·      Understand how racial oppression can become institutionalized.

    ·      Understand specific steps organizations do to move to equality.
