Explore biases, microaggressions, free speech, and cultural competency through activities led by ATIXA experts.

Coordinator Five: Bias and Cultural Competencies is a two-day course focused on developing an understanding of bias, cultural competency, and intersectionality in Title IX work. Participants will engage in a variety of individual and group activities to explore their own biases and the potential impacts on Title IX work.
