Facing Bias: Exposing Blind Spots/Engaging in Action

The IDEALS Institute will host Facing Bias: Exposing Blind Spots/Engaging in Action. Facing Bias is a highly interactive workshop designed to foster awareness, clarity, reflection and discussion about the concepts of diversity, inclusion, equity, access, unconscious/implicit bias and blind spots, through participant engagement in large and small group discussions. 

The workshop will be from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, April 9, in Arkansas Union 512.

Participants will be invited to collaborate in learning by sharing experiences, questions and perspectives related to workshop content in a thoughtfully facilitated environment. 

Participants will leave with resources to help guide further reflection, conversation and action to counter unconscious/implicit bias and to promote diversity, equity and inclusion. 

Faculty, students and staff may register for these trainings at bit.ly/2NKkFYs.
