DEI 102: 3 Levels of Bias, Microagressions
November 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$35.00
Are you aware that 100% of people are biased but most do not know it? Do you feel you can interact with diverse people without offending them? Would you recognize a microaggression when you see it? Do you understand the true impact of discrimination on your organization? Do you know for certain whether your workspace environment is welcoming to diverse people?
If you answered NO to any of these questions or just want to brush up on the topics, this session is for you? Come participate in an interactive session led by bestselling author and DEI expert James McKim that takes you through how do our preconceived ideas influence how we view and react to people and situations and how our biases lead to microaggressions, organizational policies, and culture that is, at best, unwelcoming and at worse, illegal.
Learning Objectives: At the end of this session participants will be able to:
- understand the 6 key fundamental concepts in a welcoming workspace
- understand what preconceived notions (unconscious implicit biases) are and how they influence our behavior
- interpret types of microaggressions and their impact to your organization
- begin to analyze the “welcomness” of your workplace for diverse employees and clients/customers
