An awareness-building training to uncover conscious and unconscious discrimination and learn tools to interrupt stereotypes, microaggressions, and implicit bias
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. 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. Diversity Uncovered 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.
