Workshop on Understanding Awareness, Empathy & Engagement
Saturday, September 12, 9 am-5 pm.

The purpose of this workshop is to create an environment where participants can identify, address, and eliminate their own individual biases so they are able to connect with diverse communities. Participants will be guided through dialogue and exercises that will challenge their beliefs and force them to examine their man/woman in the mirror.
