Full course description
These sessions will not be recorded in order to create an environment in which people are comfortable asking questions and sharing their own experiences. Please be prepared to put your camera on, utilize a working microphone, and sit in a private place if that is your preference.
Implicit bias, the attitudes and belief we hold but many not be aware of, play a major role in our everyday actions. Each and every person holds implicit biases; some more harmful than others. When we take the time to examine our biases, we can begin to rewrite those attitudes and shift our behaviors. On campus, implicit bias can lead to acting on stereotypes, committing microaggressions, or other potentially exclusive behaviors. In this session, we’ll learn more about how to identify these biases and how to combat exclusive behavior.
This session is one of the sessions in our 5-part series Elevating Identity: Strategies for Engaging the "Every" focused on identity and inclusion in an effort to move towards our organizational goal of reaching and engaging “every Jewish student”. When we say “every”, we mean it, but often struggle with putting it into practice. The overall goal of this series is to better prepare each participant to engage all students through an increased understanding of our communities’ diversity, how our own identities impact our work, and how the narratives we are familiar with dictate our course of action on campus.
