TO BE RESCHEDULED: Cultural Conversations: Cultural Conversations: “Say His Name – Healing from our Collective Cultural Trauma in the age of George Floyd”, Session Four (Online)
Session Four: Transformational Power of Personal Stories
Where does implicit bias come from? Why do I have this bias? How do I expand my understanding of cultures other than my own? This session will answer these questions and more about the paths we have taken and the personal experiences that have shaped us.
Dr. Patterson has worked with Folkmoot for three years to engage the Folkmoot community with resources that have helped to deconstruct our deeply held cultural beliefs that cause unhealthy, sometimes racist behaviors. Dana’s approach is of acceptance and building new awareness, where participants are welcomed to make mistakes and examine their preconceived thoughts and feelings. Online classes will be participatory, interactive and a safe learning environment for people of all backgrounds. Cultural Conversations will be expanded in the spring to include in-person training events for the community, student groups, businesses and corporations.
