Informing an Everyday Diversity and Inclusion Mindset: Understanding and Managing Implicit Bias
Presented by Garry Morgan, Special Assistant, Inclusion and Diversity Education for the Office of Inclusion & Diversity.
The modern workplace is built around diverse teams, developed to leverage the strengths of each member and ultimately increase organizational competitiveness. in every team, each person comes to the table with their own history and set of personally held beliefs. In this workshop, we explore the concept of implicit (unconscious) bias, and its impact on the creation and maintenance of collaborative, inclusive and viable environments. This session is designed to increase awareness about how implicit bias operates and identify techniques to mitigate its effects.
In advance of the workshop, participants are encouraged to complete Harvard’s Implicit Association Test.
This test is an online tool that focuses on measuring attitudes and beliefs that are often unaddressed and undiscussed. This exercise will be quite instructive to us as we embark on our discussion about bias, and we ask that participants bring their results to the workshop.
