Leadership Middle Tennessee: Focus Forward - Inspiring Equity 

This session will discuss implicit bias through the lived experiences of our panelists. The goals for the session include normalizing race conversations, addressing systemic issues, offering perspective and actionable steps we all can take to be more culturally aware. Attendees will walk away with a better perspective on what inequalities still exist in our society as well as how we, in our own spheres of influence, can be an ally and advocate for the cause of racial equity and inclusion.
