June 14 @ 8:00 am - June 15 @ 12:00 pm
This training explores the impacts of gender and racial bias on youth, families, organizations and communities. It will consider the dominant narratives that further disparities in safety, education, physical and mental health, and opportunity for those who live at the intersections of discriminated identities such as gender, race, age, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Through an exploration of implicit bias, participants will recognize how internal and often hidden assumptions around gender and race will harm relationships and add further trauma and disconnection for youth and adults with intersectional identities. The training ultimately promotes skills to develop allyship and to mitigate gender and racial bias within an organization’s youth development framework including One Circle Foundation’s (OCF) program models – Girls Circle and The Council for Boys and Young Men.

Trainers provide strengths-based, relationship-focused techniques and best practices that create a safe and positive learning environment.
