Wellness Wednesday: Unconscious Bias
We all hold biases we aren’t aware of. Many of these biases are necessary to make quick decisions as we go about our day—which street to avoid when driving or walking, what to do when we see an animal on a hike, what financial institution to bank with. While these biases aid us in making these decisions, they can also leave out part of the story, leading to a society where everyone is operating from their own viewpoint. This workshop will allow us to discover our biases and their impact.
By the end of this workshop, you will:
• Describe unconscious bias and possible ways it appears in everyday life
• Identify the impact of unconscious bias including in our decision-making
• Discover ways of understanding and challenging our own hidden preferences, assumptions, and biases
