Course Description

In U.S. workplaces, homes, and schools -- and around the world -- people are engaging in real conversations about race, justice, diversity, equality, and inclusion. That's a good thing, but only if conversations move to meaningful, systemic change -- but it can be hard to know where to start.

Have you ever thought about hidden biases you may have? You may not even realize you have any. Consciously, we think racism is wrong, but much of the time our brain is operating in our subconscious and this is where unconscious biases can influence our behavior without us being aware. 

You may be surprised at how big an impact small, negative comments or gestures can have on your colleagues. Microaggressions can happen accidentally or on purpose, and while it might be tempting to overlook them as minor, these acts can have life-changing impacts on the victim's physical and mental well-being.

In this series of courses you will learn:

  • The basics of racism and systemic racism, and how to recognize and correct misconceptions about race and racism
  • How to define and identify biases, particularly racial biases, and have some practical strategies for overcoming them
  • How to take action and create stronger connections and improve your relationships with others.
