Building Inclusive Workplaces and Practices

This interactive workshop will focus on tools to recognize, articulate, understand, examine, challenge, and change workplace practices with the lens of using curiosity, collaboration, and conversation as a response and reinforcing that learning organizations use these moments (of potential constructive conflict) as learning opportunities. Supervisors and employees will consider their separate but interconnected roles in creating and maintaining inclusive workplaces. Participants also will have the opportunity to apply these concepts in the context of their personal life in addition to their work, as we know that the ‘person’ and the ‘worker’ are one and the same, and that there are no clear boundaries between what we bring to work and what affects us in environments outside of the workplace. In this workshop, participants will

·      Gain a deep understanding of key concepts around diversity, inclusion, and equity

·      Learn how to apply the EDI framework to build stronger and more productive teams

·      Work in groups on goal setting around creating and maintaining an inclusive and effective organizational culture

 

Understanding and Mitigating Bias

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
