FAULT LINES WITH JEAN MARIE BROWN
The Fault Lines framework considers how personal bias along the “Fault Lines” of race, gender, sexual orientation, generation, geography and class influences relationships and how events are perceived. Originally developed for newsrooms, the Fault Lines framework has been presented in corporate and academic settings. The session will cover:
o Fault Lines framework: understanding your Fault Lines blind spots across race, class, gender, generation, geography, sexual orientation and how they create perception bias.
o Unconscious Bias: how biases are formed, how to be conscious of your own.
o Microaggressions: what are they and who commits them?
Jean Marie Brown is the senior Fault Lines trainer for the Maynard Institute. The Oakland, California-based organization has addressed issues around diversity and the media for 40+ years.
