This online class will teach you how to understand implicit bias at a personal and social level.

This online class will teach you how to understand implicit bias at a personal and social level and leverage this understanding in a way that will allow you to decrease instances of microaggressions and other covert racist tendencies in your professional and personal life, when interacting on the internet and everyday life.
