Virtual Voices | Breaking Down Systemic Racism
March 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT
Systemic racism is a form of racism that is embedded as normal practice within society or an organization. It can lead to such issues as discrimination in criminal justice, employment, housing, health care, political power, and education, among other issues. We are going to break this down at a high level to give the audience a deeper understanding of the complexities of institutional and systemic bias. The audience will also leave with tools on how to recognize and work to transform these systems.
