Improving Relationships: Exploring Implicit Bias

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

11:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m.

In this interactive workshop, we will look at implicit bias through the lens of compassion and empathy. The learning is made more meaningful because it helps to connect the concept of implicit bias to improving relationships with other people. We will look at the science of bias, how biases influence perceptions and behavior, and how biases may influence community relationships. We will explore and create ways together to reduce the bias effect thereby strengthening positive community relationships.


At the conclusion of this webinar, the participant will:

  • To demonstrate an understanding of implicit bias
  • To explain how implicit bias can impact services provided
  • To create individual action plans to reduce the impact of implicit bias
