January 9 2021 Branch Meeting and Program

A New Year & New Ideas

We are very excited about our January program where we will have Domenique Harrison, MA, MPH as our guest speaker. Domenique is a strategist, curriculum developer, and trainer at the DMH-UCLA Prevention Center of Excellence, a partnership between UCLA and LA County’s Department of Mental Health. Domenique is known as the racial equity expert on her team and strives to have the voices of vulnerable individuals heard. She has done numerous professional presentations on implicit bias and systemic oppression.

Domenique’s presentation on Recognizing and Challenging Unconscious Bias is an evidence-based, educational training that includes interactive group discussions, videos, and activities. We will learn to define implicit bias, identify our own biases, and mitigate the unintended effects of such biases. We will learn to apply our understanding of unconscious bias and explore strategies that challenge unconscious bias and racism.

The new Diversity and Inclusion Committee is working closely with the Program Committee to bring this program to the branch. To foster an inclusive and equitable organization, we must continue to learn, grow, and challenge our own perceptions and biases. This is a first step
in that process, and we hope that you will be able to join us. Do you know a prospective member who might be interested in this program and learning more about AAUW? Please invite them to join us for our January program from 10:30 am—12:00 pm. Use this link to RSVP:
