This workshop will help participants identify institutional bias in the context of a university environment and understand the relationship between bias and culture. Participants will leave the workshop with a change model designed to overcome institutional bias. 

Day two is a practice lab follow-up to day one where participants will have the opportunity to extrapolate components of their framework developed in the workshop and apply what they have learned by examining case studies. 

You will learn to: 

  • Examine how institutional bias impacts the workplace
  • Understand the relationship between bias and culture change efforts
  • Establish a framework for interrupting and mitigating  institutional bias
