Implicit Bias: Reducing Racial Disparities Through Understanding
DescriptionDiversity and acceptance has taken on a new importance in the world today. Participants of this training will be able to use strategies for removing barriers and stereotypes on a personal level, in their communities and in their workplace. To effectively support diversity in our daily lives, we must understand and confront our own unconscious biases. This workshop will help participants define and understand implicit and explicit bias and how to overcome these biases to help create a more diverse world at work and at home. They will be instructed to use skills such as active listening to receive messages in a diverse population, employ effective questioning techniques, and communicate with strength.
