DAY 20: Final Reflections

Today’s challenge is to take time to reflect on your experience. Research shows that a critical component to learning is taking time to reflect or being intentional about processing the lessons being taught by your experiences.

REFLECTION QUESTIONS:

  1. What are my identities and in what ways have my identities impacted my life? Are there identities of mine that have provided me higher social capital or privilege in certain environments, or vice versa?
  2. What were some of my assumptions about race and racial inequity before I started this 21-day challenge? In what ways have these assumptions been challenged? In what ways have they been reinforced?
  3. Where have I seen evidence of inequities and systemic and structural racism in my community?
  4. What are two or three shifts, changes or actions that I can take to create a more inclusive and equitable environment in my home, workplace and community?

Retake the Harvard Implicit Bias test from Day 4. Have your results changed? Reflect on ways you can build authentic relationships across racial lines and positively impact your implicit biases.
 
As you prepare to complete the 21-Day Equity Challenge, we encourage you to write down a goal that you can do moving forward. Research shows that when you write down your goals, you are more likely to commit to them and achieve them.
