“ISMS is a roundtable networking and discussion group addressing various social stigmas with a different theme each month,” write event organizers. “Participants will be a part of an active learning discussion regarding the month’s theme, and find ways that we as a community can work against themed ‘isms.'”
Previously, the group has held discussions on topics like sizeism, religious imperialism, racism and classism. On March 19, the topic will be sexism, with a sessions on heterosexism scheduled for April 16.
“The group will be led by Megan Fuciarelli from US2 Consulting, Inc,” organizers said.
