Event Description

Implicit bias is our unconscious tendency to judge people based on past experiences. Even when we’re mindful of diversity and inclusion, it is hard for us to notice our implicit bias until we encounter the situations where it is activated. In this workshop, explore the nature of implicit bias and discover strategies to minimize bias in the classroom and in the workplace. Registration is required.

CTLT’s Foundations of Diversity seminars tackle tough questions involving culture, identity, and responsive teaching in a friendly, non-threatening environment. This seminar series can give faculty and staff an essential start in understanding issues that aren’t always easy to talk about. Attend as many or a few as you can. Participants who complete all sessions receive a certificate of recognition.

This workshop falls under the AAC&U High-Impact Educational Practice of Diversity/Global Learning.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
