Academic Affairs will hold a divisional meeting on Monday, November 11 from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. in the Student Center Regis Room.
This meeting will include a campus climate workshop “Talk About, Think About & Act on Implicit Bias.” Explicit bias refers to the attitudes and beliefs that one may have about a person or group on a conscious level. A female student’s point of view is ignored, while her male peer is applauded for sharing the same or similar insight. A black colleague is viewed as threatening for expressing frustration with work, while a white colleague is viewed as overwhelmed.
Unconsciously, our attitudes, perceptions and stereotypes impact the way we communicate, interact and make decisions. This interactive workshop will increase awareness of implicit bias, assist participants in identifying examples and discuss strategies.
This workshop is open to all staff, faculty and administrators.
Academic Affairs will host a reception following the workshop to encourage continued conversations. Beer, wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
