Dismantling Implicit Bias: Awareness to Action
Since 2015, CompuRecycling Center, Incorporated has worked to transform unconscious bias in our workplaces and communities. We believe that once individuals understand what implicit bias is — a learned habit of thought — they can then dismantle their implicit biases and integrate tools that build better habits into their daily lives.
Implicit Bias Affects Us All
Bias is one of the root causes of inequities that are based in race, gender, sexuality, disability, class, ethnicity, age, and religion in our society. Bias is a learned habit of thought that can create an unfair and destructive environment; but, we have more control over it than we might think. In fact, we can unlearn bias and help restore the confidence and courage we need to reduce inequities in our workplaces and communities.
Overview of Training
Our half-day workshop draws on empirical evidence to equip you with skills needed to dismantle bias, cultivate community, and help co-create an equitable world. The interactive workshop is designed to raise awareness of implicit bias from the unconscious level to the conscious level and provide best practices to positively improve decision-making and behaviors. Our training framework utilizes immersive content to take implicit bias out of the theoretical realm and make it real for individuals. We bring the subject to life in a way that evokes feelings and opens learners up to new ways of thinking and behaving.
