Understanding & Reducing Unconscious/Implicit Bias

Description:
Although all of us possess Unconscious/Implicit Bias, learning what it is and how to recognize it can offer many benefits to individuals and the organizations in which they work. The 3-hour workshop introduces participants to the meaning of Unconscious/Implicit Bias, how it differs from Conscious/Explicit Bias, and how to implement two proven strategies to reduce their own Unconscious/Implicit Bias so they can work more effectively with others. The 6-hour workshop provides participants with a total of four proven strategies so they will not only reduce their own Unconscious/Implicit Bias, but also acquire the skills to effectively communicate with others on this subject without casting blame. As a result, participants can return to the workplace equipped to reduce the harmful Unconscious Implicit Bias that prevents their company/organization from achieving its workplace goals.

Participants in the 3-hour workshop will…
Comprehend the differences between Conscious/Explicit Bias and Unconscious/Implicit Bias
