I was a part of a masters program where we were taught to delve deep into our own biases and reflect on our practices. I identify as a white, cisgender female who is on a journey to learn about my white privilege and how this affects my leadership role in my organization. “Racism and our biases can show up as thoughts, words, silence, or actions or lack of action, and all these things can happen intentionally or unintentionally”. This program asked each of us to reflect on our own behaviour and how each of us was contributing to or supressing the creation of an anti-bias, anti-racist community. To reflect and share weekly on our own practice and the challenges we were facing in our early childhood contexts from around the world during such unprecedented times was an incredible and therapeutic occurrence for me.
