Webinar (OH): Recognizing and Neutralizing Bias

Description

Recent events in our nation have brought into clearer focus the critical need for organizations to create a diverse and inclusive culture where everyone can thrive. Enhancing awareness, identifying and addressing unconscious biases, and creating an environment where all feel comfortable bringing their authentic selves to the workplace are practices that must be part of every organization’s workforce development strategy.

Learning Objectives
  • Appreciate the importance of understanding how explicit and implicit bias works
  • Recognize some of your own hidden preferences, assumptions and biases
  • Become aware of prejudice and stereotyping other people

 

Major Topics
  • Bias is described in Webster’s dictionary as “the prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.”

    This session will focus on understand the bias and the difference between explicit and implicit bias.

    Explicit bias refers to the prejudice beliefs or attitudes one has towards a person or group on a conscious level. Explicit attitudes are feeling and thoughts that one deliberately believes and can consciously document.

    Implicit bias are prejudices, beliefs, or attitudes towards a person or group that are not within the margins of awareness, and are thus, unconscious. Implicit bias can be difficult to acknowledge and control because it exists beyond one’s conscious thoughts or feelings. Implicit bias can undermine our explicit intentions or openly-held beliefs
