“Fault Lines” Diversity Training with the Maynard Institute

Event Details

via Zoom

RSVP Via Jotform

The session will cover different forms of bias and the conditions where they are most likely to thrive. Attendees can expect to expand their understanding of how the Fault Lines®, biases, and microaggressions all come together to create untenable relationships with colleagues, community, and work environments.

The Maynard Institute works to help attendees understand microaggressions – what they are, who commits them, how they erode morale, and what you can do to stop them and hold colleagues accountable.

*This discussion will be tailored for WGAE members as determined by a pre-workshop survey distributed to attendees. This additional survey will be linked in your confirmation email. Please complete by EOD on Monday, June 10.

PLEASE NOTE: WGAE is able to present this event for free due to a generous grant from the New York State Consortium for Worker Education (CWE).

CWE receives a significant portion of their funding from the state, and needs to collect comprehensive data from program participants so they can provide supporting documentation necessary to maintain that funding. In the event that a government agency wants to audit or question the validity of the funding, the data is used to demonstrate program outcomes.

Completion of the registration form is required to attend this event.
