She focuses on strategies to keep ourselves safer and to challenge racism. For important details, please read her full blog post. Here are some topics:
  • Distinguish intuition and implicit bias
  • Learn adrenaline management
  • Practice awareness and threat assessment
  • Commit to unlearning implicit bias
Thank you, Linda!
