Using Bias Awareness to Create Cultures of Belonging and Inclusion

Facilitating Bias Conversations – Normalizing the bias conversation while building conversational skills to infuse a sustainable culture of belonging and inclusion for internal and external stakeholders.

Racial and diversity issues are impacted through our biased experiences. The ability to talk about the issues of race, class and bias requires skills like deep listening and purposeful conversations. This dialogue will support staff and leaders to more effectively communicate about race and bias in professional and personal relationships. We will talk about the definition of bias and how biases are formed. Participants will understand how to use self-awareness and critical self-reflection to understand the Origination Point of biases and how biases are created and deconstructed. This topic is important as American workplaces are faced with understanding and developing strategies and actions to address the impacts of systemic racism conversations that are occurring in our communities and workplaces.

Learning objectives

1. Understand and use Organizational Change Theory to develop a belonging and inclusive culture.

2. Define what it means to be anti-racist

3. Use of self- awareness to deconstruct biases
