Please join the IDP community for a special interactive workshop to help our white members better understand and address the intersections of identity, learn how our implicit bias affects our language, and, through experiential exercises, learn how to spot your implicit bias and how to address it with confidence and compassion.

What to expect:

  • Collaboration in a judgment-free zone
  • Interactive exercises where participants reflect and uncover how unconscious bias forms our deepest opinions
  • Dissection of coded language and how we use it in our day-to-day
  • Exercises that develop words and phrases to use when experiencing or witnessing a microaggression

This training is open to all who identify as white.  No experience or special knowledge is required.

Registration Fees

Fees: $50*/$75/$100/$150
 
IDP is offering this special training on a sliding scale registration.  Participants are asked to pay the highest rate you can reasonably afford so we can accomodate as many students as possible.  If you are a Monthly Member, we suggest you select the middle rate. Scholarship information is available at the bottom of this page.
 
*This rate is suggested for students, senior citizens, and unemployed persons.
 

Pooja Kothari is the founder of Boundless Awareness. Her experience in confronting bias and creating dialogue stems from her experience as a Public Defender at The Legal Aid Society, where she spent six years representing indigent clients in a criminal justice system over-represented by people of color.  During that time, she created dialogue around racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia and poverty. ‚Äč As a queer, first generation Indian-American woman, Pooja's life experience with intersections of bias provides the compassionate framework she uses in her workshops.

IDP strives to meet the financial needs of our community while facing the financial challenges of running a not-for-profit in NYC.  Each of our paid programs grant one Work Study position to a reliable volunteer, and two POC Scholarships which reduce registration to half price for eligible students.  You must apply for these programs at the link below no later than one week before the program begins.
