Wednesday 3:00 – 4:00 PM

Session Description

Since I have been doing this work, when was the last time I spent time walking in the roles of those served by our efforts — who did not look like me?

Have I recently entrusted someone else of a different background / ethnicity / orientation with something very important, knowing that they may not have the tools / network / access to complete it as well as I; yet I entrusted them anyway knowing that the process would be good for their personal/professional growth, as well as my own?

If I am being honest, have I taken measures to be aware of my own internal biases? —

As professionals, we must be intentional about our individual efforts towards growth and development.

That’s because those who are improving, help others to improve also —or in other words, “Better people, better People.
