As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have not yet re-started.
However, Cornell NorCal continues to present a robust calendar of virtual events on a monthly basis. Additionally, we are cross-posting highlighted events from other Cornell clubs on our page below.

TURNING AWARENESS INTO ACTION: Reduction of Bias, Prejudice, and Racism

For so many years, the field of diversity, equity, and inclusion has emphasized increased awareness and understanding of the constantly changing landscape of racism. When the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor sparked the most recent flame of racial consciousness, many of us became more aware of the contemporary manifestations of racism. While awareness is critical, knowing is only half the battle. Instead, we must fan the flames of awareness until they ignite into a world forever changed.

In this talk, Dr. Dana Crawford invites us to reflect on change that is not driven by the need for more awareness but the necessity of action. More specifically, Dr. Crawford will discuss how to use the Crawford Bias Reduction Theory & Training (CBRT) to systematically reduce bias, prejudice, and racism. The CBRT approach helps participants move from being reactive to the manifestations of bias, prejudice, and racism to being mindful and strategic in responding. This talk will provide participants with concrete bias reduction skills that can be implemented immediately.
