The purpose of this training is to help community leaders understand race-related concepts in hopes of breaking down the barriers racial bias creates. Further objectives of this training include providing a historical background of race relations and discrimination, recognizing common diversity and inclusion related misconceptions, and defining Implicit Bias and discussing how bias manifests in our daily lives.
