Some self-learning opportunities take less than 5 minutes; others might require setting aside a 30-60 minute block of time. Educating yourself to better understand how the past has impacted the current state of affairs, and learning what you can do to limit your own bias and be more inclusive, is a practice. It is a lifelong journey, not something to simply check off the to-do list. Join us as we learn together and collectively live into our commitment to DEI.
