Breaking the Bias Habit®: A Workshop to Promote a Diverse, Welcoming, and Inclusive Campus

a workshop to promote a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive campus

Workshop Description

This three-hour workshop introduces faculty and staff to the concepts of implicit or unconscious biases and assumptions about diverse groups of people by treating the application of such biases as a "bad habit." Participants will uncover their own biases through use of an Implicit Association Test, will discover the underlying concepts and language used in the psychological and social psychological literature to describe such processes, will participate in interactive discussions about the potential influence of implicit or unconscious bias in their department/unit, and will learn evidence-based strategies for reducing the application of these biases.
