EXAMINING CULTURE AND BIAS WORKSHOP
This workshop introduces learners to the concepts of cultural competence and encourages learners to explore and reflect upon how personal values, biases and assumptions can impact the quality of daily interactions. We all bring unconscious biases into the our everyday interactions. These deeply subconscious attitudes span race, gender, appearance, age, wealth and much more. They influence everything from the neighborhood you live in, to the friends you make. These biases are reflexively triggered without our knowledge, they are virtually unnoticeable. Our unconscious biases are hidden. Although we are unaware of them they influence our beliefs about and behavior toward others. Through a series of exercises, discussions and self-reflective activities participants we will examine our personal cultural competence and, increasing our ability to understand, communicate with, and effectively interact with all people. WE WILL EXPLORE:The relationship between culture and bias.Looking at our individual cultural background, including privilege.The definition of unconscious bias and the cognitive processes which enable it.
