Understanding and Mitigating Bias
Taking an intersectional approach, this workshop will help participants to build their understanding of bias and practice steps that can be taken to limit the impact of unconscious biases on our decisions and behaviours. Participants will enhance their self-awareness of their own biases, build understanding of their social conditioning, and examine behaviour versus intention in professed values and daily behaviours. Through case studies and interactive exercises, participants will identify their biases and assumptions, and learn how strategies to mitigate biases at the personal and organizational levels. After participating in this training, participants will be able to:
- Understand and define the concept of unconscious bias
- Recognize personal and organizational biases and the way they impact our behaviours, interactions, and decisions
- Identify and use tools and strategies to mitigate their personal and organizational biases
