Our October Cocktails & Conversations topic is titled "Flipping Unconscious Bias." Gender roles are NOT destinies that must be fulfilled. Women and men are responsible for developing positive systems of behavior that eradicate toxic behavior and frees us from the confines of gender socialization. We will look at how unconscious bias develops from a young age and explore ways to change the script, creating positive relationships and equitable gender roles.

Panelists:

  • Siri Chilazi of Harvard University
  • Shan Mukhtar DEI Practitioner and Researcher
  • Sandra Victorino from Providence Center

Moderated by: Susan Bosco and Ame Lambert from RWU

Please take one or more of these surveys before attending the event. The results won't be shared, but you'll have some idea about your own biases that may not have been apparent before.
