Implicit Bias and Gender: Trans Women, Women of Color, and Older Women Speak Out
DLT will present its latest film, My Whole Self, featuring five women at various intersections speaking about microaggressions and bias. The film will be a springboard to learning how women experience discrimination in different ways depending upon their unique blend of identity. Both funny and sad, the film allows attendees to consider how implicit bias and microaggressions affect the daily lives of themselves, their colleagues, and the institutions they support.
The film helps people learn about gender bias and intersectionality, a prime concept in today’s fight for equity and inclusion in public service. Attendees will learn how to recognize and intervene in gender based microaggressions, including those directed toward women at different intersections.
