Training Description
Flash Judgments are judgments that we make about people based upon their appearances and our first impressions of them. We make flash judgments on a daily basis without even thinking about them. Flash judgments impact the choices we make, the opinions we form, who we interact with and how we treat others. This workshop will help raise awareness of our implicit bias and how it influences our actions and affects our communities. We will then identify ways in which we can create positive changes.

Objectives
1. Understand the impact that today’s changing demographics have on the community and other institutions.
2. Gain an understanding of implicit bias and how it may impact their life.
3. Recognize how attitudes towards differences influence their interactions with others.
4. Have an opportunity to get to know other participants.
