BREAKING DOWN BIAS: How Race as a Social Construct Impacts Interpersonal Interaction

Three (3) Hour Virtual Professional Development Diversity Workshop for Texas Psychologists, LPCs, LCSWs, and LMFTs

Friday, March 5, 2021  - 9:00 am to 12:15 pm


Workshop Description

Brittani Hite, founder and strategic director of Ethos Equity Consulting, will present on the topic, "BREAKING DOWN BIAS: How Race as a Social Construct Impacts Interpersonal Interaction." Using historical context and present-day examples, Brittani artfully leads candid conversations around tough topics like racism. She establishes psychologically safe spaces where participants can lean into discomfort and thoughtfully identify, unlearn and work through the harmful ways oppressive behavior is unconsciously perpetuated.

Learning Objectives

  • Establish a shared understanding of race as a construct
  • Identify how the construct of race impacts individuals through privilege or oppression
  • Recognize what bias is and how it manifests itself
  • Spark introspection to avoid perpetuating racist ideology rooted in bias through increased empathy and emotional intelligence

Presenter

As the founder and strategic director of Ethos Equity Consulting, Brittani Hite is focused on advancing racial and social equity. With more than a decade of communication and engagement experience Brittani is known for her ability to work collaboratively, identifying and resolving obstacles to justice through human-centered strategies. She consistently establishes effective paths to progress by shaking up the status quo and cultivating courageous leaders with empathy, clarity and an intersectional DEI approach.

Prior to launching Ethos Equity, Brittani successfully managed a portfolio of capital improvement projects, ranging from $20MM to $200MM, with the goal of amplifying historically marginalized perspectives and catalyzing holistic liberation for BIPOC communities. Her work established mutual understandings of how equitable processes can support the needs of people and organizations alike.

Brittani is a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia with degrees in Communication and Business, and is certified in Leadership Diversity, Equity and Inclusion from Northwestern University. When she isn’t championing collective liberation Brittani enjoys photography, traveling, time spent with family and friends, and exploring the outdoors with her husband and two dogs.
