Stereotyping has long been considered a potential source of inequality for diverse social groups within our community and across the nation. Stereotypes can form and be persistent for a variety of reasons. Join us as we explore the origins of stereotyping, possible consequences and strategies to reduce its negative impact. Learn how to enhance your awareness of implicit preferences and stereotypes, along with approaches to tackle explicit stereotyping in our society.

The Alverno Forum invites the Greater Milwaukee community to engage in respectful dialogue and common effort for the public good.

All Forums begin at 6:00 p.m. at Alverno College. For more information, call the Institute for Educational Outreach at 414-382-6087 or email
