How do we address our own implicit biases and those of others before these lead to systematic and structural racism and discrimination?

In this interactive workshop, we will examine research on our natural tendency to have implicit biases and how they influence our institutions, staff, and students, and we’ll explore strategies to counteract them.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand that bias is a natural human tendency that, left unchecked, can undermine equity in our schools and universities. 
  • Recognize our own and others’ implicit biases (including those around race and culture) in our schools and universities. Know strategies to address implicit biases.

Note: We are running this workshop twice—on 23 and 24 February—so that you can choose one of the time/date options to best suit your time zone. 

This new workshop is part of a series to help you tackle racism in your schools and universities.

Registration deadline: 16 February 2021
