In today’s work environment, comments of a biased or prejudiced manner are harmful to the climate and work relationships. What is our role in these situations? What happens if we fail to do something?   

We’ll discuss strategies and gain practical experience for dealing with bias and prejudice in the workplace.  This interactive workshop will engage participants in several structured activities to learn more about themselves and others by critically examining assumptions and biases.

Key takeaways:

-Perspectives of diverse groups in the U.S. who have beliefs, attitudes, ideas, and behaviors that are different from our own.
-Understanding the effects of biased or prejudiced comments in the work environment.
-Understanding our role in interrupting biased incidents and how “failure to interrupt” impacts the work climate
-Strategies, communication skills, and practical experience in addressing biased comments in the moment in the work environment
