Identifying Bias In Our Work
VFHY Grantee Exclusive Event – Free Registration
April 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm ET
Virtual Workshop Description
This 90 minute workshop offered by the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities will equip participants to identify and mitigate biases in order to enrich services for youth they serve. Participants will engage in case studies to hone in on skills that promote an equitable and inclusive dynamic with the young people they serve. They will identify ways in which bias manifests, broaden their vocabulary which strengthens equitable and inclusive practices, explore methods that can interrupt bias, examine their own beliefs and assumptions and consider actions for creating more inclusive and equitable environments.
The training will provide learning in both the cognitive and affective domains impacting the Head which provides an understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) at deep levels, the Heart which allows participants to explore their own feelings, experiences and stories related to DEI, and the Hand providing concrete tools and skills that can advance a more inclusive and equitable organization.
