Book Discussions: Not Just a #Hashtag: September, 2022 - May, 2023: Biased
Dr. Bryant Marks who provided the implicit bias training to the SUA community in 2020 and 2022 encouraged us to read this book and discuss our thoughts together. We will meet several times throughout the year during the lunch break by the cafeteria. The first meeting will cover Introduction, chapter 1, and chapter 2 on 9/21, and we will then discuss chapter 3 and 4 during the second gathering on 10/26. Please sign up, and we will send you more details.
