Our facilitator, Kenya Budd, will help us explore implicit bias and help us understand how they appear in interpersonal interactions in your practices, with students and with peers. In addition, she will help us understand how implicit bias can be an impediment to another person's access to wellness, and we'll also discuss racial anxiety and fragility. Kenya will help us navigate self-reflective questions and help us find some viable interruptions that can impact a group's functioning, communication and trust.
