Moving Beyond Stereotypes
Based on the work of Dr. Ruby Payne and facilitated by a certified Bridges trainer, this interactive workshop improves understanding and begins dismantling common stereotypes by:
- identifying accurate mental models of poverty, middle class, and wealth
- recognizing unconscious norms and ‘hidden rules’ of socioeconomic class
- acknowledging personal bias and exploring the complexities of poverty and prosperity
