Participants will explore the history and framework of "isms". They will define biases, values, identity and entitlement.

In this learning group participants discuss why we are here, who we are in relation to others and what we can achieve together. Participants will also examine why systems of oppression were developed. Participants will develop a curriculum to take back to their organizations to share what the organization can do to be champions of inclusion, equity and diversity.
