Though connected more than ever, we all still have unconscious biases that affect how we perceive or interact with others. These biases create barriers to developing true connection with others. In this session, Dr. Leslie will have an honest but candid discussion around the unconscious biases and prejudices we hold against others and that the solution lies in boldly owning our stories and moving closer to the things (and people) that scare us. This keynote is great for addressing diversity and inclusion and social justice issues on campus, as well as peer relationships within campus organizations. This talk can also be adapted into a workshop format.
