EPIP CO | Implicit Bias and Microaggressions Workshop

No matter how open-minded we might like to think we are, we are all inherently biased. These biases develop over the course of our lives as a result of the influences of our friends and family, our personal experiences, our cultural background and external sources such as the media. While we may be largely unaware of them, they can exert a powerful influence on how we interact with those around us and the decisions that we make about people and situations.  

Implicit bias and microaggressions are inherently linked. Microaggressions stem from our being largely unconscious about the ways in which we project our biases and expectations, or lack thereof, onto people in a way that can feel neutral but actually cause harm.

Participants in this session will:

  • Identify their own biases and take action to compensate for them
  • Assess the impact of bias in organizational decision-making, culture and policy
  • Understand the link between implicit bias and microaggressions
  • Explore what can be done to tackle bias and  interrupt microaggressions on both individual and organizational levels
  • Understand how to care for people impacted by microaggressions
The training will be facilitated by Jamie Morgan. Space is limited so RSVP soon!
