The Danger of a Single Story

April 13, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT

The MKP Chicago Leader Body and Chicago Area Council are committed to providing opportunities for our community to learn and grow.

We are proud to present “The Danger of a Single Story.” Inspired by the excellent Ted Talk by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie that reveals the risk of “the single story,” and how the stereotypes we hold activate our default biases. These blind spots can prevent us from truly seeing each other and from the nuance needed to create relationships.

Erik Treese and Mike Patterson will guide us on an interactive workshop where you will:

  • Participate in a fun and challenging zoom activity that reveals how we process information
  • Discuss the story in a zoom style world cafe
  • Learn how bias and stereotypes impact how we form relationships

This is an open workshop. Feel free to invite friends and family.
