Racial Bias Awareness Training

  • First Reformed Church United Church of Christ (map)

Dr. Amanda Kemp will be leading a training on on racial bias awareness on May 29 from 12-2pm at First Reformed Church of Lancaster. On this day Starbucks Cafe will be closing every store in the nation to provide implicit bias to its employees. Their training was spurred by an April incident in which employees at a Philadelphia Starbucks store asked police to remove two black entrepreneurs who were waiting for a business contact.

Kemp's Racial Bias Awareness Training offers tools to have productive conversations about racism and shows participants how to recognize and stop actions driven by unconscious bias. Participants will gain greater understanding of institutional racism and actions they can take to make their businesses, organizations, and communities more inclusive and equitable.
