Welcoming Dialogue on Racial Bias- Innovation Quarter
Ever wondered where to start with social justice issues? Have you wanted to become involved, but worry about using the wrong language? Join a group of like-minded voyagers as you engage in the Starbucks To Be Welcoming learning series.
This To Be Welcoming course creates a baseline for discussions of race and racism. You will situate your understanding of issues of race and racism in the United States by exploring definitions, discussion points and social context. We begin by defining the key terms on race you will see throughout the course, followed by a video module featuring faculty experts answering commonly asked questions. Next, we provide some context and examples of how to identify and deal with racial biases in personal, social and educational settings. We conclude with points for starting your own discussions on American racial bias and considering appropriate responses.
