UNH POWERPLAY & INCLUXION WORKS: BIAS AWARENESS AND INTERVENTION

Virtual Event

October 21, 2020 October 23, 2020

Ever wondered “Why didn’t I say something?” after witnessing social bias—a stereotype, a prejudice or discrimination—that happened in your everyday life? Deciding whether and how to respond to bias is complicated. Understanding what motivates us to speak up, the challenges we face when doing so, and strategies for effective responding can help bystanders to bias better evaluate their options and select effective strategies. 

In this 90-minute web-based workshop, attendees will first learn about bystander reactions to social biases and how these reactions can help or hinder decisions to speak up. Attendees will then be invited to apply these concepts to everyday incidents of bias though facilitated interaction and discussion.
