RECAP - The Women's Fund 2019 Social Change Exchange:
Unconscious Bias: A Hidden Risk?
This year, the Fund screened TED Talk, Chimamande Ngozi Adichie, "Danger of a Single Story" and facilitated discussions that examined how our unconscious biases shape what we think we "know" and how we can challenge common assumptions to impact change.

Thank you to all of the Women's Fund members and community partners who participated in our annual Social Change Exchange.
We had an awesome turnout, and heard some really great conversations taking place throughout the room; we hope that you are continuing to have them in your respective circles and beyond!

If you were not able to attend the 2019 Social Change Exchange, you can view the TED Talk here:

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to create social change for women and girls in Forsyth County.
