Program Description

Studies have identified implicit (racial/ethnic/gender/religious/lifestyle) bias among providers as a potential contributor to disparities in the outcome of marginalized and minority communities. Mitigating implicit bias among healthcare and social service providers has been identified as a strategy to improve client/patient-provider communication and service/treatment decisions, contributing to improved quality of care. This interactive and self-reflective training is intended to increase cultural humility, broaden participant’s awareness of their implicit bias (subtle, unconscious assumptions about others) and equip them with tools to engage with clients in more open, respectful and empathetic ways.

This interactive and self-reflective training this workshop aims to empower attendees to: 

1. Define implicit/unconscious bias
2. Identify the impact of implicit/unconscious bias in the client/patient-provider relationship
3. Identify and use strategies for dismantling and/or reducing implicit/unconscious bias.
