In advance of the event, we strongly encourage all attendees to complete the Implicit Association Test from Project Implicit, which can be found here: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html. Click "I wish to proceed" and then select the "Race IAT." An understanding of implicit bias will provide a good foundation for this conversation.
