Session #2: COUNTERACTING UNCONSCIOUS BIAS
Too often, discriminatory actions take place as unconscious biases or direct workplace bullying. During this training, employees will learn and identify the difference between unconscious bias and conscious bias.
Employees will engage in role-play and scenario acting to understand and recognize the impact of a tone of voice, body language, and words have on others. They will reflect on the different scenarios from the bully’s, victim’s, and bystander’s perspectives
The purpose of this training is to demonstrate the emotional response and the impact these disrespectful acts of unethical professional behavior and discrimination has on others, the overall workplace culture, and daily operations.
Employees will self-identify what unconscious biases they may be holding on to and collectively discuss why they occur, how they can be resolved, and what actions they can begin to adopt to correct these.
Additionally, employees will work as teams to devise organizational adaptations and responses for leadership and management to consider for organizational shifts in curbing discrimination and unethical workplaces.
Session 2 takeaways:
- Recognition of unconscious bias and conscious bias
- Personal recognition and adaptation techniques to practice
- Strong awareness of emotional response and negative impact each has on personal development and organizational success
