In our increasingly diverse world, we must educate ourselves about unconscious bias and discrimination, and how this may present in systems, policies, and daily interactions so that we can reduce its effects. This webinar will define some key terms, and viewers will learn strategies to identify bias in themselves, reduce the influence of bias in their contexts, and create inclusive environments. Viewers will also learn how to talk to others, including children, about race and diversity.
Learning ObjectivesUpon completion of this workshop, participants should be able to:
- Define key terms such as unconscious bias, prejudice, and discrimination
- List key steps to minimize the influence of unconscious bias
- Identify ways in which they can talk about race and racism in different contexts
