This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under "Primary Access."

Our world is filled with inequities along lines of race, gender, sexual orientation and other identities. They show up on almost any measure you can think of: income, wealth, life expectancy, or venture capital funding. Recent polls even show that almost 50% of white Americans don't believe racism is a big problem. This workshop aims to teach effective strategies for engaging these skeptics, empowering allies with persuasion tools based on recent research in neurobiology.
