What you will learn:

Jumping head-first into anti-racism is a noble, yet often misguided pursuit. Systematic racism relies on the subtle, often subconscious bias frames WE ALL LEARN and from which we tend to operate. In Befriending the Disruptor, Monica uses her energy and humor to guide partners through a series of simple, yet impactful exercises. These activities are designed to explore implicit bias and the ways it manifests in daily life. Let’s face it, most of us don’t want to feel uncomfortable, let alone racist. For that reason, this course is purposefully designed as a first step, start-where-you-are adventure in self-exploration.

Participants will take away tools and resources for lifelong learning.
