Ivan Canada and Michael Robinson of the National Conference for Community and Justice of the Piedmont Triad presented the second webinar in the Center's "Walking the Talk" series, Impact > Intention: Understanding Implicit Bias. The discussion included:

- Tools and resources to help us determine whether we are living out our values and mission
