Unconscious Bias and Civil Discourse Training for LEAD New York
Equipping food, agriculture and natural resource professionals with skills to be exemplary and effective leaders
With this grant, LEAD New York Program is enhancing its curriculum in the broad area of leading across difference. Specifically, the team is conducting two new workshops — “Moving Beyond Unconscious Bias” and “Engaging in Civil Discourse” — to help participants improve their leadership skills in the areas of understanding implicit bias, appreciating diversity, engaging in productive civil discourse, reducing conflict and reaching peaceful solutions in communities, challenging personal paradigms and critical thinking.
