About the Event

This 90-minute workshop provides an introduction to unconscious bias, inviting participants to reflect upon how our ingrained beliefs influence our emotions, behaviours, and thoughts whether we realize it or not. With this understanding we explore ways bias might be limiting our life, impacting our allyship efforts, and what we can do to lessen its effects.

The main learning objectives in this session are:

  • Defining unconscious bias
  • Reviewing different types of bias that exist
  • Reflecting on how bias may shows up for us
  • Exploring what you can do to interrupt your bias

This session requires participants to complete approximately 30-minutes of light prep work, including reading and reflecting, prior to the session. There will be group discussions based on the prep work provided.

Additional resources are also provided following the session.
