Living in America in 2020 has been exhausting for everyone. No matter your age, gender, race or sexual orientation you’ve struggled. If we are being honest, during this time we can acknowledge the increased disparities as it relates to healthcare and racial injustices, etc. Kyle Korver, NBA Player – Milwaukee Bucks, has a moment of self-reflection and shares his views on privilege as a white, professional athlete. In preparation for this session, please read Kyle’s Letter here: https://www.theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles/kyle-korver-utah-jazz-nba.
Let’s talk about bias, privilege and how we can all become better allies during this time of isolation and social distancing. Rather than point the finger and assume others are responsible for the lack of inclusivity without ever challenging ourselves to look in the mirror, let’s follow Kyle’s lead. The choice is YOURS! Are you IN(clusive)?
- Understand what bias is and the impacts it has
