Implicit Bias

Since 1912, YWCA Charleston has been on a mission to empower women and promote social justice. In 1944, our first woman of color joined our board of directors. At that time, we issued a public proclamation condemning segregation. We embrace our organization’s mission today: “The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.” Our programs offer shelter and support to women and their children living on the edge, thus mitigating the downstream effects of poverty and racism.

After more than 100 years serving marginalized and poor communities, our diverse committee leadership (which includes representation from the Muslim, African American, Hispanic and Asian communities) and racial justice director recognize the need to build on this work and target our efforts upstream. Strengthening local capacity to attack the root causes of racism will positively affect people of color, while lifting up our entire community. We invite you to join us.

To begin systemic change, we are working on interpersonal change. This session will provide participants information to increase awareness of implicit bias and privilege through the historical context of racism and share tools for developing skills to act as an ally to dismantle racism.
