There is a version of the saying “Old habits die hard” in every culture. There’s a reason for that - what we learn usually stays in our memories for a very long time. But that doesn’t mean it’s not possible to unlearn. In this Bloom session, Ben Acquaye will explore how we can learn, unlearn, and relearn within the context of managing Bias, Unconscious Bias, and Race relations.
What you'll learn:
Learn about bias and how you can continue the process of learning and unlearning throughout your life.
During this 1 hour session, you'll have the opportunity to explore this topic in a small group of 5-6 other attendees. It'll be a chance to connect and enjoy thought-provoking conversation that is moderated by a fellow community member. It's a welcoming and safe space for all.
How to join:
This session will be accessed online through the Zoom app. It’s a video conference experience that can be accessed using your mobile phone, iPad, or computer device. Please download the Zoom app to participate.
