Lover Chancler, Director of The Center for Multiculturalism and Inclusivity at University of Central Missouri, will facilitate an honest discussion in a safe environment about the ways that we are different and the ways that we are similar related to diversity, equity and inclusion in our community. We will explore the impact that microaggressions and perceived bias have had on all of our lives.

While this dialogue may feel uncomfortable, it is essential to building understanding and empathy so we can leverage our strengths and differences at Iowa State University. Guiding questions for this session include:
= What are the trademarks for identifying microaggressions and implicit bias?
= What are some strategies for responding to feedback on our implicit biases without getting defensive? How do we respond if we feel we haven't done anything wrong?
= How does your identity and demographic reality impact how you address implicit bias? In what ways does intersectionality play a role in your approach to implicit bias?
= For instructors, what are some strategies specific to addressing "hot moments" (i.e., controversial, conflict, and/or emotionally-charged dialogues) in the classroom?
= In your experience, what key concepts, resources, strategies, or practices were most helpful for interrupting implicit bias? Were there any strategies omitted from this series that you would like to share?
== What are allies and why are they necessary?
== What is the difference between an ally and a champion?
