You Can't "Unfriend" Everyone: Interrupting and Responding to Bias

Speaker
Erin Beacham, Education Director, Southeast Region of the Anti-Defamation League


Description
Hateful rhetoric and incivility can be commonplace in our society. Have you ever heard something prejudiced but weren't sure how to respond? Or tried to intervene in bullying but aren't sure you were effective? Or gotten angry at a family member who said biased things, but froze up when you tried to respond? This workshop will examine identity, explicit/implicit bias and how this affects the way we interact with others. It will also focus on empowering participants with identifying practical skills and strategies to help prepare you to challenge and respond to biased behaviors.
