Confronting Implicit Bias: Resources for Examining and Acknowledging Privileged Identities in Higher Education

Our friends on the College of Health and Human Services’ Globalization, Culture, and Diversity Committee, along with the Watson College of Education and ETEAL, invite all faculty and staff to an applied workshop focusing on the specific ways in which implicit bias is present in our everyday lives, as well as the work we do in higher education as faculty and staff. Dr. Kristen DeVall (SOC) and Dr. James DeVita (EDL) will facilitate, encouraging attendees to examine their own identities and experiences critically. Attention will be given to identifying strategies/practices that can be implemented both within and outside the classroom through structured applied activities. This workshop is designed to be the first in a series of events focusing on implicit bias, so no prior knowledge of the term is assumed.
