ECALA is pleased to partner with the Imagine Institute for Learning to offer this one-day workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about how unconscious bias works and how it shows up in the places they are the most comfortable. This session 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.
- Explore 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.
- Review methods to help check bias in the way decisions are made.
