UNA - Understanding the Impact of Trauma in BIPOC Communities

Wednesday, December 15, 2021
8:00 am9:30 am

Free event: Join UNA partner DANA to learn more about trauma in BIPOC communities in this third of four webinars.
When we think of the different populations we seek to impact via DEI initiatives and goals, many exist. Historically speaking, we tend to recognize the challenges of racially marginalized members of society as the focal point for specific attention.

Certainly, our current societal climate supports a deeper dive into the impact of racial trauma. We seek to better understand and be better understood as allies, supporters, and caring, compassionate partners in our diverse communities.

In this Webinar you will Explore:

What traumatic experiences members of the BIPOC community endure
How these experiences affect the mental, emotional, physical health, and coping skills of members of this community
Strategies to help social and human service organizations better connect and serve clients in these communities
How understanding individual and collective implicit bias can better inform your approach to achieving sustainable and relevant DEI goals
