According to Coqual (formerly Center for Talent Innovation), an inability to openly discuss unconscious bias and stereotypes in the workplace leads to challenges in recruitment and retention and undermines employee engagement.
Utilizing curriculum from Project READY: Reimagining Equity & Access for Diverse Youth, this workshop offers employers an opportunity to begin exploring implicit bias and microaggressions in systems and institutions today and gain greater understanding of how they impact the lives of black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC).
Following this workshop, 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 the effects they have on self and others.
