The Aim Of The Training Session Is To Help Participants:
- Understand the concept of unconscious bias how it may lead us to make assumptions about people who are different from ourselves.
- Explore key features of intercultural competence in Higher Education and its effects on student attainment.
- Develop a customer-centred approach to delivering services to a diverse range of students and staff.
- Utilise strategies for increasing intercultural competence and reducing unconscious bias.
- Develop a strategy for individual action.
Explore Your Own Unconscious Bias:
Ahead of the workshop participants will be asked to explore their own unconscious bias using the “Project Implicit” online resource: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/
Please note: The Project Implicit test was established in 1998 and certain equality monitoring information requested is outdated (i.e.; limited options for participants to select under such questions as “which gender/sex do you identify as?”) –This is currently under review with the Project Implicit Team.
