Intersectional Barriers and Decision-making Criteria

Session II of the Fall 2018 GAINS workshop series will be led by Terri Thao. This workshop focuses on implicit bias, how to recognize it, and its impact on individuals and organizations. Students will develop skills for more inclusive decision-making processes that recognize multiple forms of intersecting inequalities.
