Managing (Un)conscious Bias
What is unconscious bias? This course shows you how to use improvisation and the 3 pathway framework to help you identify, acknowledged, and overcome bias.
We judge ourselves based on our conscious beliefs and decisions and are often shocked when we get to 'see' the outcome of our unconscious biases. Many of our beliefs are unconscious, and they play an important role in how we make decisions, choices, and actions about a person or a specific group of people.
In this course, we use customized tools, including improvisation, to have difficult conversations of bias. By using these tools, we create a safe space to unearth the roots of certain biases while exploring the impact of bias on racialized vs. non-racialized communities. This course also covers how we can "override" our bias using proven practices and commitments.
Unconscious bias represents a gap between your true self and the pillars of your ultimate potential. This course will introduce you to our customized tools, including the Ultimate Potentials Gap cycle, the 3 Pathways Framework, and more to help you identify, acknowledge and overcome bias. This course is designed on the principles of public health and business and is perfect for organizations looking for ways to embed anti-racist practices within their team's fabric.
