Micro-inequities in the Workplace (3 hours)

November 10, 2022, 1 p.m. - 4 p.m.

**Registration link to come**

A micro-inequity is a behavior, a subtle form of discrimination where a person is singled out, devalued, overlooked, or ignored due to their accent, ethno-racial identity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic class, disability, or membership in a minoritized group. Micro-inequities have negative impacts on workplaces and the wellbeing of individuals and communities. In this workshop, participants will have a good understanding of micro-inequities, the way they impact individuals, and workplaces, how to identify and respond to such behaviours, and how to implement preventative strategies.


Participants will:

• Increase awareness around micro-inequities.

• Support skill development in the area of anti-discrimination to mitigate and intervene in instances of micro-inequities.

• Promote inclusive communication skills and service delivery.

• Explore new behaviors including reducing discriminatory habits and attitudes.

Taking an intersectional approach, this workshop will help participants to build their understanding of bias and practice steps that can be taken to limit the impact of unconscious biases on our decisions and behaviours. Participants will enhance their self-awareness of their own biases, build understanding of their social conditioning, and examine behaviour versus intention in professed values and daily behaviours. Through case studies and interactive exercises, participants will identify their biases and assumptions, and learn how strategies to mitigate biases at the personal and organizational levels.  in this training, participants will:

Understand and define the concept of unconscious bias
Recognize personal and organizational biases and the way they impact our behaviours, interactions, and decisions
Identify and use tools and strategies to mitigate their personal and organizational bias
