Creating Safe Environments to Recognize and Mitigate Implicit Bias

This 3-hour workshop is an interactive session that is designed for forward-thinking educators who seek to co-create inclusive environments, facilitate intentional conversations that explore implicit bias, and graduate students who are better prepared in aligning their explicit intentions with actions. Participants will be guided in activities that deepen awareness of implicit bias and strengthen their capacity to safely discuss how implicit bias could potentially influence care delivery.
