Local diversity, cultural and bias awareness trainer Kim Harris, M.Ed., is conducting a workshop at the Whatcom Peace & Justice Center titled, “The Mind/Society Connection: How Starbucks, Yale, Fresh Kitchen and Police incidences are symptomatic of society’s biases.” The five learning objectives for this workshop are: to comprehend the definition of bias, analyze and discuss recent incidences of bias as evidenced by the news and on social media, understand racial bias research based on industry specialists, analyze and discuss participants' own biases (based on a pre-workshop assignment) and to learn de-biasing tools and resources for further growth and exploration.
The workshop will be held on Tuesday, July 17 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Whatcom Peace & Justice Center located at 1220 Bay Street, Bellingham.
