Addressing Implicit Bias

At our upcoming May 6 Roundtable Discussion, the Matthew 25 committee will roll out an easy-to-use "Toolkit" to introduce the reality of implicit bias. This four step process is designed to approach the topic from the perspective of education and introspection in a non-judgmental fashion. No one is immune from carrying biases and until we can recognize them in ourselves, we can do little to change them.

Please join us at 2 pm, May 6 or watch for the official Toolkit release soon.
