In an effort to identify and understand our own personal biases and how they developed, we will utilize the LEVI, Life Experience and Values Inventory. This tool will allow us to delve deeper into how we judge, relate and communicate. Sevgi Fernandez of Together We Stand and Dr. John P. Fernandez of ARMCGlobal, global leaders on racism, sexism and diversity training, will be facilitating. The emphasis will be to create GlobalTREE, Trust, Respect, Empathy, Ethics, through a multifaceted approach using individual and group exercises.
