Summary

Discussion with Dr. Chugh on how good people fight bias.

Description

At Women for Progress, we want to acknowledge the moment we're living through, with unprecedented numbers of protesters taking to the streets to affirm that Black Lives Matter and to decry police brutality. By now, you've probably engaged on social media. Maybe you’ve also attended a protest and donated to a BLM organization. What's the next step you can take in engaging in anti-racist actions? Learning & undoing our implicit bias.

 

Join us on Wed., 6/24 at 7:30pm for a discussion on how good people fight bias, with acclaimed author & educator Dolly Chugh. Dr. Chugh is the author of “The Person YOU Mean to Be” and is a Harvard-educated, award-winning social psychologist at the NYU Stern School of Business. She is an expert on unconscious biases and the psychology of good people. 

It’s not enough to just talk the anti-racist talk; we also have to walk the walk. We have to put our money where our mouth is - literally! That’s why we’re purchasing our copies of “The Person You Mean to Be” from Source of Knowledge, a Black-owned bookstore in Newark. Check out their website here. They are taking phone orders and will ship or do curbside pickup.
If you prefer to order on-line, The Lit. Bar is another Black-owned bookstore that gives you that option. 

If you do not have time to read the book before this event, please at least watch Dr. Chugh's Ted Talk Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2cixaL9H3U

We have a small budget reserved for books for those who need financial assistance, please reach out to erinchung@womenforprogress.org.

Once registered you will receive the Zoom link to the event.  Please join us for this important conversation
