Now What? A Conversation on Bias and Impact

Tuesday, May 11, 2021 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm EST

Presenter: Colene Elridge

Session Level: Intermediate

Description:

The definition of implicit bias is as follows:
The unconscious attitudes, stereotypes and unintentional actions (positive or negative) towards members of a group merely because of their membership in that group. These associations develop over the course of a lifetime beginning at a very early age through exposure to direct and indirect messages. When people are acting out of their implicit bias, they are not even aware that their actions are biased. In fact, those biases may be in direct conflict with a person’s explicit beliefs and values. That’s what makes it so challenging to see the difference between what you believe and your behavior.
This engaging conversation will review implicit bias, discuss how to become more aware of your own bias, how your bias can impact the work you do, and real and tangible ways to be aware of your bias and remove them. It’s not always an easy conversation, but it is necessary to move forward.

Outcomes:

  • Review of implicit bias and how it impacts our perspective.
  • Understanding of individual roles in creating more inclusive cultures.
  • Create an individual Action Plan to build cultures of inclusions.

Number of Hours: 2
