[Zoom Meeting] Open Your Mind with OpenedEyes: You Don’t Know Until You Know

About the Series:

The Nonprofit Partnership is teaming up with OpenedEyes to start the tough conversations that we need to have. It doesn’t matter where you are on the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion spectrum. It doesn’t matter what color your skin is. It doesn’t matter your sexual orientation. It doesn’t matter if you’re a nonprofit employee starting out or the leader that has been at the helm for years. All are welcome and encouraged to join in the conversation. Tune in to this series to have important conversations, learn something new and open our minds!

Please note – this series is for you, the attendee. Engagement via video/audio is strongly encouraged but we’d never turn someone away who’d prefer to soak up the information. Whatever your level of comfort or knowledge, we want you to find benefit. Save your spot now - there is limited space available!

Session 2: You Don’t Know Until You Know

Join the OpenedEyes team for a conversation structured around implicit bias – attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. We’ll touch on:

Society’s involvement regarding stereotypes
Judge how we have possibly criticized someone for their appearance
Debate if stereotypes are accurate and analyze
Consider stereotypes we may fall under
And any questions or thoughts that you may have!

Please note: There will be five sessions total within this series - please feel free to join us for all five! Mark your calendar for the additional sessions:

Session 3: Your Circle Matters - October 7th at 9:00 AM
Session 4: What WHO Are You? - November 5th at 10:00 AM
Session 5: You’ve Heard it Before and You’ll Hear it Again: There Isn’t Community without Unity - December 2nd at 10:00 AM
