Woburn Ambassadors is a new program being presented by Social Capital Inc. (SCI) in partnership with the Woburn Public Schools designed to help families who are newcomers in Woburn connect to everything the community has to offer. In our ambassadors we are looking for an interest in sharing your enthusiasm for the Woburn community with newcomers, a strong knowledge of the community, a commitment to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment in Woburn, and willingness to keep in contact with a family new to the community. 2nd language skills are also helpful but not required.

Implicit Biases are our unconscious associations that generate feelings and attitudes about other people based on race, ethnicity, age, gender and other identifying traits. We all have biases that we are unaware of, and they significantly impact how we interact with others, personally and professionally. This workshop will introduce participants to the concept of implicit bias, what it is, how it develops, its impacts, and research based debiasing strategies.
