Jewish Community Services is pleased to offer this workshop on implicit bias and microaggressions utilizing curriculum from Project READY: Reimaging Equity & Access for Diverse Youth. This curriculum is approved by the Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities and the Cultural and Linguistic Health Care Professional Competency Program to meet the implicit bias training requirement for social work licensure in Maryland. In keeping with the state mandate, CEUs will not be awarded for this workshop; however, participants will receive a certificate of completion as evidence they have fulfilled the requirements.
As a result of the training, participants will be able to:
- Define implicit bias and microaggression and give examples of these concepts in action
- Describe how implicit biases are formed and the ways in which they impact the lives of people of color
- Examine their own biases and how they affect oneself and others
Free and open to the community.
