Municipalities are often looked to for a response to bias incidents that occur within their community or their organization. Local experts from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) will offer an overview of hate crimes and bias incident trends, focusing in particular on the growth of white nationalism. This session will provide municipal leaders with tools for responding to incidents of hate and bias in their communities and workplaces, focusing on five core concepts in three action phases related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and bias incident response.
- Prevent / Prepare
- Heal / Educate
In addition to current data on hate trends and a review of key terminology, the presentation will offer participants opportunities to consider the different kinds of interventions that might be necessary at each stage of an incident (and the incident’s potential escalation) and what municipalities can do to navigate situations as they arise.
Police chiefs, PIO’s, and communication staff are encouraged to attend.
Panelists will include:
Dr. Lara Trubowitz, Education Director, ADL Midwest and Associate Director, National College and University Programs
Ms. Daisha Muhammad, Project Manager, Managing Implicit Bias for Law Enforcement
Note that this session will not be recorded and must be virtually attended “live”
