Are you biased? Well I am. And you are, too. We’re all biased. Biases are attitudes and stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions and decisions in an unconscious manner. Bias is activated involuntarily, without intention or control. Unconscious bias causes us to make quick and often, inaccurate judgments based on limited facts and our own life experiences. These judgments can give individuals and groups both an unearned advantage and an unearned disadvantage.
Explore this topic during the October 24 webinar led by Marni Panas, Program Manager, Diversity and Inclusion for Alberta Health Services, with a live Q&A facilitated by the Practice Team at the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta. Register today!
In our everyday lives, when people don’t fit our internalized expectations, we can sometimes have difficulty seeing their talents, motivations and potential clearly… this means we interact with them less effectively. Recognizing we have bias and where our biases come from is one of the first, and the biggest, steps in dealing with the impact of our bias.
In this webinar, we will:
- Explore how our brains form unconscious judgments
- Review various forms of bias
- Discuss how biases impact our decisions and interactions with each other
- Explore strategies to reduce bias in our day to day lives
Includes a LIVE Q&A with the CLPNA’s Practice Team.
This webinar is FREE! There is no registration fee to attend.
