Dr. Bentley Gibson, CEO of the Bias Adjuster, joined us to present her Discovering Your Race, Gender and Sexuality Implicit Biases workshop. She presented the latest research on implicit bias in order to increase awareness about how it impacts real-world behaviors and relationships. She also discussed effective strategies to mitigate implicit biases in order to develop more positive attitudes about negatively stereotyped groups.
Sunday Platform is our most important and long-standing community event. These gatherings educate, stimulate personal growth, inspire reflection and action, and strengthen our community. Sunday meetings usually begin with music, followed by greetings and a talk given by a Society Leader, member, or guest. Platforms cover a variety of topics that reflect current events, pressing social issues, and Ethical Culture philosophy. A collection basket is passed and money is shared between the Society and a charity selected for that day. While contributions are always appreciated, Sunday meetings are free and open to the public. Each Sunday meeting is followed by a luncheon and social hour.
