TED Talk: How to Overcome Our Biases? Walk Boldly Toward Them

February 10, 2019 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Our biases can be dangerous,even deadly – as we’ve seen in the cases of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner, in Staten Island, New York. Diversity advocate Verna Myers looks closely at some of the subconscious attitudes we hold toward out-groups. She makes a plea to all people: Acknowledge your biases. Then move toward, not away from, the groups that make you uncomfortable. In a funny, impassioned, important talk, she shows us how.

Join us as we continue to honor Black History month. Our moderator will be Kay Potetz.
