Open Enrollment Workshop (Students): Introduction to Unconscious Bias

February 15 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Workshop Description

All of us have unconscious biases that may prevent us from making equitable, inclusive decisions. In this workshop, you will explore what unconscious bias is and how it manifests in the workplace.

You will leave this session with an understanding of:

  • the different types of bias and where they originate from how biases can influence workplace decisions and interactions;
  • how to recognize bias within yourself and others; and
  • strategies for mitigating bias and making more informed decisions
