We all have unconscious biases. They help us establish a sense of security, but they can also exclude, isolate, and marginalize others, damaging workplace relations and everyday business. This workshop helps us identify our own and others’ harmful biases, situate them within a greater social and cultural understanding of systemic inequality, and foster strategies for interrupting them to better ourselves, our workplace, and our society.
- Define unconscious bias, its relationship to broader systemic inequities and impact in the workplace.
- Raise awareness of how our background and identity shape our biases.
- Identify strategies to address microaggressions at work and create inclusive cultural change.
- Identify strategies to reduce harmful biases in hiring, career development, and team dynamics.
