Picture yourself stepping off a curb to cross the street. As your foot hits the pavement, you hear screeching brakes from a car barreling toward you. You react immediately and live to tell the tale. Our brain is an amazing organ. In this instance, it quickly got you out of the way of a speeding car. But our brain also stores immense amounts of data influenced by stereotypes, media representations, and our own lived experiences. And our brain uses this stored knowledge and these experiences to inform our decisions, our biases, and our actions.

During this 60-minute interactive session, we will explore the ways our brains function to keep us alive as in the opening scenario, and how the same part of our brain can create inequities in the workplace. Through our discussions, you'll gain increased awareness and acquire new skills to build a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
