Cultivating an Inclusive Environment: Recognizing and Responding to Implicit Bias

Register Now – go.osu.edu/cfaesaprilworkshop

Description:

This interactive workshop will explore how identities, beliefs, and backgrounds shape our perceptions of other people in ways that can unconsciously widen the diversity gap and negatively influence the people we interact with. Participants will learn how to identify and empathetically respond to unconscious, or implicit, bias in order to foster a more inclusive environment for everyone. Prior to the workshop, participants are asked to take a few online tests developed by Harvard University to detect unconscious biases and preferences. The Implicit Associations Tests are brief, easy to complete and very informativehttp://www.implicit.harvard.edu/implicit. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss their results during the workshop in a respectful and judgement-free environment.

This workshop is free and open to all CFAES faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students on a first come basis. Cap: 30.

Light refreshments will be provided
