- User - Free!
A large part of advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion is understanding our biases. Exploring unconscious bias is a critical starting point to understanding structural inequity and why some maintain power and influence and others are held back, despite our best intentions. During this 75-minute webinar, participants will learn where individual unconscious biases come from and how they collectively manifest to advantage some and disadvantage others. Participants will explore their own biases and how to start mitigating them.
- Describe what unconscious bias is and where it comes from.
- Reflect on how it plays out in our lives and affects decision-making, especially in health care settings.
- Practice how to mitigate the effects of unconscious bias.
