Event Description

Often discrimination happens in organizations, and specifically in hiring practices, because of ingrained stereotypical thoughts and ideas we have been taught to believe as true. These ideas are so embedded in our brains we actually believe they are "natural" or the "norm." 

Based on leading-edge research in bias mitigation, we know that the most effective anti-bias training incorporates strategies on both the personal and institutional levels. This leadership training provides solutions to both.

Participants are invited to consider their own biases, and the unintended consequences of those biases. Strategies will be provided for ameliorating personal biases, and those that are situated in the policies and practices of the organization.

The workshop offers a path toward a more culturally inclusive organizational environment. This training will be focused on awareness of disability bias.

Participants will be asked to use their phone to complete an online assessment through Project Implicit and will be asked to participate in our study, measuring implicit and explicit bias.
