Upcoming Webinars

June 10th, 2021

Branson Boykins, Ph.D. continues our exciting webinar series with a presentation titled, "The Biases We Hold: A Personal Examination of Systemic Racism".

Understanding racism and prejudice today requires a contemporary definition that acknowledges racism as a pervasive cancer in our society. Racism is an oppressive system that creates implicit biases within us all. In this webinar, Dr. Boykins will discuss how we all hold biases, and reflect on how individuals try to “free” or “omit” themselves from having prejudices. He will examine contemporary forms of prejudicial thinking that manifest in our lived experiences and share ways to acknowledge the biases we hold. Engaging in allyship and multicultural competence is a life-long process, and therefore, we do not “arrive” at a place free of bias.
