A two-part forum brought to you by the Fellowship for Social Justice, a local community organization, will take place this fall. The topic is understanding bias.
Forum dates are:
* Oct. 26: “Consciously Addressing Unconscious Bias”
* Nov. 9: “Moving Forward Together”
Both sessions will be from 6 to 8 p.m. in the MountainView Ballroom, 38759 S. Mountain View Blvd., at SaddleBrooke.
The forum will be conducted by Anthony Cicchino, Ed.D., who is a curriculum developer for higher education and holds a masters and a doctorate in education. He volunteers with local organizations such as Tu Nidito grief services and National Alliance on Mental Illness Southern Arizona. His mission is to allow others to feel that it is okay to not be okay and encourage them to share their stories.
Come join us for a discussion about how we have been socialized to have bias, how to understand your own biases, hear from people’s experiences, and get suggestions for changing your behavior for the better.
