Implicit Bias Training for Co-op Owners and Staff

Uploaded Image: /vs-uploads/news-blog/Implicit Bias Training.png

A way for HWFC staff and member-owners to share in a learning experience and gain important knowledge and language 

Why at the Co-op?  “Honest Weight was founded on good intentions, and has endeavored to enact its Mission and Statements of Conscience in good faith. However, because racism and discrimination are fundamental to our country and pervade every aspect of life,  there's no reason to believe our Co-op doesn't perpetuate racial biases. We want to do better, both within our walls and beyond” (HWFC Board, 2020).

Why Take the Implicit Bias Series Module Training?  HWFC Anti-Racism Committee is actively implementing and encouraging the growth of anti-racist learning experiences for all to engage in.  Understanding and recognizing implicit bias is one way we can rectify and prevent the impact of harm done to historically marginalized individuals within the HWFC community.
