These engaging conversations will cover topics ranging from the current challenges facing the community and how it is covered in media to how the social activism of the last 50+ years has helped bring it to where it is today. Hosted and moderated by Cathy Renna, Communications Director, National LGBTQ Task Force. Keynote Speech from Stephanie Battaglino, Speaker, Author, “Reflections from Both Sides of the Glass Ceiling.” This event is sponsored in part by: The Bonnie Yablon Foundation; Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication Department of Advertising and Public Relations at University of Georgia; FINN Partners; CommPRO; and Muck Rack.

The Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) Implicit Bias Training from Morehouse College June 30 and July 14, 2021
The Diversity Equity Accessibility Inclusivity Committee (DEAI) and the Editor’s Council of the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) have organized a thoughtful and expert training for the travel industry that is now open to members and non-members alike. Through NTIRE, the National Training Institute on Race and Equity at Morehouse College, this training will address diversity in the workplace and in all parts of our professional lives. Implicit Bias Training Seminars offered by the Society of American Travel Writers are made possible by Switzerland Tourism and take place this summer on Wednesday, June 30 from 12-3pm ET and Wednesday, July 14 from 12-3pm ET. Entry through advanced registration only. Fee of $25 per person is for non SATW Members only unless they register a group (2 people or more – up to ten total) which will be $20 per person. There is a 500 person cap. Please click here to go to the www.SATW.org website page to sign up. As part of Morehead College’s Brake Your Bias curriculum, the NTIRE team has developed two implicit bias trainings: 1) Implicit Bias Awareness (IB 101) and 2) Implicit Bias Mitigation (IB 201) that will be held via live webinars and the second session will address the travel industry specifically. The first phase of the training, IB 101, taking place on Wednesday, June 30, addresses biases from an individual point of view and includes questions, such as: What is implicit bias? What causes implicit bias? How is implicit bias measured? How does implicit bias affect the person who holds the bias? How does implicit bias affect the attitudes and behaviors of the target group? How can implicit bias be reduced/managed at the individual level? The second phase, IB 201, takes place on Wednesday July 14 and focuses on the organization. It covers homework assignments from IB 101; discusses implicit bias in the employee life cycle: hiring, talent development, promotion, and exit; introduces a three-step model for addressing implicit bias in organizations: assessment, awareness, taking action; explains the three components of a bias management action plan: transparency, objective standards, and accountability; and addresses the potential impact of implicit bias on performance evaluations, team dynamics, and decision making in the workplace. Finally, an overview of follow-up activities and materials reinforces workshop information and increase the likelihood of long-term impact of the training. To register visit SATW.org.
