On Dec. 14, join fellow city officials for an interactive virtual session to explore the history of race and the role of local government in equity for all residents. Come ready to participate as you learn more about implicit and explicit bias, understand your experiences of race, and identify ways cities are eliminating institutional and structural racism.

During this session, you will:

  • Understand the history and current impacts of race; implicit and explicit bias; and individual, institutional, and structural racism.
  • Identify instances of implicit and explicit bias and individual, institutional, and structural racism.
  • Get motivated to take action.

Two days before the session, you’ll be sent a link to a 30-minute video that will be discussed on Dec. 14. The contents of the video will provide a framework for part of the discussion. It is highly encouraged you take time to view the whole video ahead of this session and come ready to discuss.
