    Inclusive Communities

    Inclusive Communities’ programs are designed to examine and break down the stereotypes, myths, and barriers among the divides of race, faith, gender, ability, and other diversities – a critical first step in the blueprint for building an inclusive culture that reflects mutual trust, acceptance, and respect of all its staff.
    Inclusive Communities will join us for a session in which we will learn about Identities both visible and non-visible.We will then explore the idea of intersectionality and how our views on certain identities shape our perspectives and interactions. Then we will look at ways in which certain ideas are learned or taught in society, before discussing implicit bias, and having facilitated dialogue around microaggressions and inclusive language. 

    Presenter:  Tena Hahn-Rodriguez
