In this workshop, participants will briefly define implicit bias and explore the root of our unconscious discrimination. We will also learn tools to identify implicit bias in ourselves and others and explore ways to make the implicit more explicit, including practical steps we can take to reduce implicit bias. Through activities and large and small group discussion, we will also gain tools, language, and practice in effectively and compassionately interrupting implicit bias, discrimination, and oppression perpetuated by our colleagues and clients.
