with Dr. Benita Horn
Sponsored by Okanogan, Jefferson, Grays Harbor, Lewis, Cowlitz,and Clallam Counties
COVID-19 has been a game changer around the world. As a result, more people are working in isolation, and many of us are experiencing anxiety, fear, concern and even misplaced anger. In our country we are dealing with a pandemic that landed on the foundation of historical inequities and disparities. Some of the emotions surfacing are a breeding ground for unconscious / implicit bias to flourish and even creep in to our thoughts, words and actions. This workshop will explore how we deepen our knowledge of implicit bias, how implicit bias negatively impacts goals of diversity/equity/inclusion, and of actions we can take as individuals to address behaviors around us that negatively impact others.
Learning Objectives (Info, tools, and skills attendees will receive):
- Attendees will have an understanding of the definition unconscious/ implicit bias
- Identify ways to change negatively impacted goals
- Tools for diversity/equity/inclusion
