Description

The Diversity Uncovered Training includes:

  • Implicit Bias and Microaggressions are terms that often trigger fear, anxiety, and defensiveness from staff as they try to make sense of what these terms mean and do everything in their power to not be associated with them.

  • Diversity Uncovered Online was designed to help staff deconstruct these terms and build a framework to talk about both conscious, intentional discrimination and unconscious, unintentional discrimination.

  • This training will take staff on a journey of self-awareness and empathy-building that starts by addressing fears and concerns that exist around talking to staff about discrimination.

  • Participants will then learn the difference between unconscious and conscious discrimination and explore challenges with identifying and interrupting them.

  • Your team will walk away with common knowledge of diversity terms, practice talking about discrimination and challenges with one another, and helpful tools and tips to address discrimination in the workplace

  • Participants will Identify what stereotypes are, the complexities around addressing them, and strategies to discuss them when they occur.

  • Your team will develop a clear and simple framework to identify the differences between conscious and unconscious bias and discrimination and how they differ from each other 

  • An introduction to Identifying hidden bias by learning self-awareness skills that will reduce the likelihood of unintentionally causing harm to another person with a microaggression.

Issues Addressed

  • Your team may experience discomfort around talking about discrimination issues in your workplace 

  • There may be confusion around how to address colleagues that make inappropriate discriminatory comments

  • Your team has not engaged in implicit bias training in the past and needs to learn key terminology in order to talk about bias and discrimination 

  • Unconscious and unintentional discrimination has become an issue in your organization due to implicit bias and you need a training to help us identify what implicit discrimination is.

  • There may be some tension or upset on your team due to past issues around discrimination and we need to find a way to talk about it and engage in some relationship building as we do so.
