ECALA is pleased to be able to host another workshop with Imagine Institute for Learning and offer this three-part evening series. Participants will have the opportunity to explore more about how unconscious bias works and how it shows up in the places we are the most comfortable. This workshop (covered over three Tuesday evenings) will use research and activities to uncover how difficult conversations help uncover bias and how tough conversations are not confrontational but validating. No preparation is necessary, as you will all come with your biases, as we all have them.
- Discuss unconscious bias and the ways it can show up.
- Review ways bias shows up in the way we interact with colleagues.
- Increase communication skills related to bias with tools to support challenging conversations related to bias.
- Explore methods to help check bias in the way decisions are made.
