Implicit Bias Training - Taster session
- Monday 1 March 2021
The Diversity and Inclusion Expertisebureau has developed an Implicit Bias training for staff, postdocs and PhDs. As there is growing interest in the programme, the bureau is organising a ‘taster’ session with Caroline Pickard, to provide those interested with a short introduction to the training programme. The actual trainings are organised for groups and units, and this session provides a chance to get to know the programme.
This session will explore how implicit bias - the attitudes or associations we hold about individuals or groups of people which unconsciously affect our understanding and influence the actions and decisions we take in the workplace - can impact everyday practice at the University.
Participants will explore how we negotiate care tasks and work at home and in our workplace during corona, and have the opportunity to enter into a dialogue about how diversity and bias plays out in our daily interactions, and how we can discuss these everyday challenges with colleagues and supervisors.
The workshop will provide a first taste of a programme which has been developed for Leiden University and which is available to all interested units within the University.
