To answer these questions and more, join Temple Jeremiah on Sunday, September 13th for an implicit bias training workshop. The workshop, led by Pat Savage-Williams, will feature a mix of short presentations, interactive exercises, and discussions with the aim of challenging the unconscious prejudices we carry with us. The workshop will also provide participants with tools to combat their own implicit biases. Please register below, the Zoom link will be sent to all registrants.
