    Registration is complimentary and required to receive access to the workshop. For members only. 

    This is not your typical workshop.  As part of its diversity, equity and inclusion initiative, ULI Atlanta and ULI Charlotte is offering a training session to support its leadership and members to deepen your learning and collective approach to race, racism, equity and social justice. Participants will develop a common language, increase their comfort level explicitly naming and talking about race, racism, bias and de-biasing. We believe these are critical skills to effectively lead in our industry and community. The 90-minute session will describe unconscious bias in the context of structural inequities and provides evidence-based strategies on how to de-bias. Participants will learn the psychological underpinnings of bias with a particular focus on in-group bias.  An activity on social identities and personal reflection will be included.

    This workshop is one in a three-part series of workshops provided to members at no charge, to further the diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives of our District Councils.  If you enjoy this program, we invite you to consider making a donation to the ULI Foundation to support future initiatives.  For more information about donating,  click here, and make sure you designate ULI Atlanta or ULI Charlotte for your donation.
