Opening Keynote Speaker

Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover! Creating Safe Spaces & Psychological Safety for ALL!


Wednesday, March 20 • 5:15-6:15 PM

Speaker: Dr. Adolph Brown


About the Session

Literally, one cannot tell the contents of a book by just looking at the material used to hold it together. A book with a torn and worn cover may be more important, more entertaining, or more useful than a book bound in a flashier manner. The same can be extended to relationships. The prejudice of making decisions solely based on outward appearance could cost one the chance of a meaningful encounter. This keynote session will provide opportunities for self-exploration of one's implicit biases, the tools to adjust automatic patterns of thinking, and ultimately strategies to eliminate discriminatory behaviors.
