Unconscious bias is something we all have and often find it challenging to reconcile. It serves a reminder that we are all human and are navigating the human experience with different thoughts and understanding of others. While unconscious bias is not something we can eliminate, we can deepen our understanding of how to recognize and ultimately confront it, lessening the impact on our lives and the lives of others around us.
Unconfronted, unconscious bias can negatively impact our behavior and have a detrimental impact in the workplace, in particular, around service delivery. These impacts could include prioritizing one group over another, disregarding concerns of certain people, limiting opportunities for growth and advancement, as well as causing harm to peers with differences from our own.
This training will include a 30 minute out-of-class assignment and will focus on racial bias and provide participants with the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the nature of unconscious bias along with the impact it has on service delivery and workplace environment. Participants will be provided with action steps and skills to confront such bias and ultimately change personal attitudes and behaviors.
