About this Event

Emotions have a purpose, they give us valuable data. Our biases are locked using emotional memory. Racism are emotions that are coming from deeply rooted practice and experiences. This workshop, using process based facilitation will help participants to explore their unconscious biases.

Questions this session will explore:

  • What emotions emerge when you face racism or watch racist behaviors?
  • What unconscious biases are you becoming aware of?
  • What will you do with those emotions?
  • How can building your emotional intelligence help you to fight racism?
