Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) DiscussionGroup


Description

Our discussions focus on a prompt that is assigned by our facilitator, Margy Lim. So far, we have read articles, watched webcasts, listen to podcast episodes, watched interviews, and experienced taking the Harvard Implicit Association Test.

Mission

The DEI Discussion group is a learning circle, educating ourselves about the US history that we weren't taught in school, the codification of whiteness and white domination in the founding of our country, the neuroscience and effects of bias, and becoming aware of how we may inadvertently perpetuate white dominance.


Group Meets

The DEI Discussion Group meets the last Tuesday of the month.
7:00 -8:00p.m. (Zoom)
