In the summer of 2020 following the murder of George Floyd, the YWCA Greater Green Bay responded with the Where We Live series to discuss the real implications of racism in our community and what we can do right here to eliminate it. You can view the entire video series here.
Implicit Bias Conference
At the YWCA Implicit Bias Conference, we define the issues, provide insight into the historical factors and current realities that must be addressed for service providers to provide equitable opportunities that people of color experience as helpful. The conference will also provide participants practical definitions of implicit bias, racism and prejudice with eye opening examples of how implicit bias is expressing itself in Northeastern Wisconsin. It will extend a robust community conversation about ways we can provide equal service opportunities across the changing demographics of this region. This is only truly possible if service providers and peace officers understand their own beliefs about people different from them and the implicit bias they have which impacts how they engage in their work with people different from them.
