Unit 1 Slide Deck: Owning Racism & Living the Solution
Unit 2 Recording: Owning Racism & Living the Solution

Racism and bias are in the forefront of everyone’s mind as our country is facing an ugly history that won’t go away. The truth is, racism and bias are all of our problems and we must learn to face our fears, explore the hidden parts of ourselves, admit our biases and choose to be a part of the solution. Not just for right now, but for all time. This webinar series will explore the history of systematic racism in our country, its consequences, and how White blindness has perpetuated it to this day. We will also dive into the foundations of bias, the reasons our brains are hardwired for it, and how our experiences reinforce our beliefs. Finally, we will review how we can become more aware of our biases, embrace our ethical responsibility to directly address racism, and learn how to be effective allies.

This webinar series will help participants find ways to facilitate conversations, overcome barriers and conflict, and take the leap toward transformation.


This is part of a 3-part series:


Resources and Handouts


Audience Comments

  • “I never really thought about [this topic, until] this presentation brought to my attention the racism behind having an “ethnic” aisle in a store. That I feel is so normalized that I never even realized it. Thank you so much, I look forward to other presentations. — Alejandra
  • “I don’t know if I learned anything “new” but it has challenged me to listen better before responding. I also think the Law Enforcement Community needs to be honest about the racism that affects it all over America. Currently, we are not.” — Arrow
  • “Will probably listen again and (hopefully) be able to process it all better. It was really helpful. Thank you.” — Charla
  • “The presenter was non-judgemental.” — Chris
  • “I think going into the history of racism is always important, and then looking at privilege as a tool to help us see how we benefit from it and how the lack of it holds others back. Very timely webinar. Thank you.” — Christina
  • “Dr. Miller was a very knowledgeable speaker. This is the best class I have taken on race in the past 6 years. No guilt was assigned, everything was spelled out and explained and now I know more about the subject and am willing to bring it into my workplace.” — Christine
  • “Her humility to admit that she also has a bias, I had been in many webinars were the presenters never admits that.” — Elvita
  • “Amazing! I just loved your great attitude and the welcoming place you came from. I learned an abundance of things!” — Emily
  • “Dr. Miller was very well spoken of a difficult topic for many people to accept. Well Done.” — Jason
  • “I think Kim did a great job cramming so much material into such little time. The history and issues go so deep, I am glad to hear she has a thorough class available for people to try to learn and grow. It has been needed for so long.” — Leah
  • “All information on this topic is equally valuable in understanding the roots of racism. Thank you for tackling this topic.” — LaTonya
  • “I love the tips on how to deal with people in the workplace when they’re angry and/or talking to you in an unpleasant way and how you should react.” — Martika
  • “I enjoyed the personal experience she shared and as an African American, I thought that she gave tangible steps for us all to be better people to each other.” — Tracey
  • “Kim, as usual, you provide a perspective that is fresh, and eye-opening. Thank you for framing the history of racism, into the current day.” — Tina
