Cultivating an Inclusive Environment: Recognizing and Responding to Unconscious Bias Workshop

Wednesday, January 02nd, 2019
This interactive workshop will explore how identities, beliefs, and backgrounds shape our perceptions of other people in ways that can unconsciously widen the diversity gap and negatively influence the people with whom we interact. Participants will learn how to identify and empathetically respond to unconscious, or implicit, bias in order to foster a more inclusive environment for everyone. Prior to the workshop, participants are asked to take a few online tests developed by Harvard University to detect unconscious biases and preferences. The workshop is being offered January 11, 2019 from 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m. in Columbus, Ohio and January 25, 2019 from 1:30-4 p.m. in Wooster, Ohio. Follow this link to register.
