Professional Development Workshop: Cultivating an Inclusive Environment: Recognizing and Responding to Unconscious Bias (Wooster)

an instructor teaching students about plants

This interactive workshop will explore how identities, beliefs, and backgrounds shape our perceptions of other people in ways that can negatively impact the people with whom we interact and unconsciously widen the diversity gap. Participants will learn how to identify and empathetically respond to implicit bias in order to foster a more inclusive environment at work, home, and in their communities. This workshop provides a nurturing and judgement-free space for participants to share and discuss their experiences and learn strategies for being an active bystander. 

This workshop is free and open to the entire OSU community on a first come basis. Cap: 30 participants. Lunch will be provided.
