Through our Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation – Los Angeles (TRHT-LA) initiative, SCG is proud to offer Addressing Implicit Bias 201.



This deep-dive, follow-on workshop lead by expert Dr. Bryant T. Marks, Sr. will go into much more detail about how you can change your personal and organizational behaviors and practices. Dr. Marks’ engaging and interactive workshop will provide a detailed description and examples of how to implement the five promising practices for managing/reducing personal bias introduced in the 1.0 training. The audience will be able to ask questions, weigh the pros and cons of various suggestions, and outline a plan of action. Dr. Marks will also describe the three-phase approach to managing/reducing implicit bias at the organizational level via NTIRE’s AAA model—Assessment, Awareness, Action. The AAA model provides a step-by-step description of managing/reducing organizational bias that will allow attendees to take an evidence-based approach to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion. See SCG President & CEO Christine Essel's column and video on implicit bias in The NonProfit Times
