The Danger of a Single Story

danger of a signle storyWe are aware of the ways in which we can most effectively connect with donors, but we are not always aware of the ways in which our unconscious biases can interfere. This program explores the “Single Story” bias and how it can negatively impact our interactions with others, especially when the bias is operating outside of our awareness.

Single stories are single accounts or stereotypes that we hold about others, based on the social group we assume that they belong to. This workshop will explore this concept through interactive activities and discussions.
