From Implicit Bias to Explicit Action: Confronting Anti-Blackness

Event: Friday, November 10th, 12:30 pm - 1:20 pm in Moore Lounge.

#BlackLivesMatterBeloit challenges the Beloit campus to confront implicit bias--specifically anti-Blackness. At the beginning of the week, participants take a black/white implicit bias test along with a second bias test of their choice. Over the week, participants note manifestations of bias, whether in themselves or others, overt or subtle, and share anonymous examples of observed bias through an online form.

Please join us for this culminating event to reflect on the most commonly reported examples of racial bias and collectively devise strategies to combat it.
