Behaviors that Trigger Negative Bias

Wednesday, July 21, 10:00 AM - Wednesday, July 21, 2021, 12:00 PM
Wednesday, July 21, 2021, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Fee: $45 for MCN members / $65 for nonmembers
We are most likely to act on our implicit biases when we are triggered by stressful situations. Recognizing our triggers will help us interrupt unintentional bias-based mistreatment and create a stronger workplace culture of equity and belonging for all. Participants in this workshop will unpack the behaviors from others that they personally struggle with in different circumstances, reflect on their responses to those behaviors, and examine how implicit bias influences these responses in ways that might result in negative outcomes and experiences for others.
