Domain: Level 1, Cognitive Complexity
Description: The unconscious mind helps to shape our everyday behaviors, attitudes, and decision-making process. As we become a more global society, awareness of our automatic reactions and stereotypes is vital to creating deeper appreciation and understanding of others. This interactive workshop explores the concepts of implicit bias and microaggressions. Students will be empowered to notice their own biases and perhaps advocate on behalf of others with bystander intervention strategies.
1) Heighten one's awareness of various social identities and privileges.
2) Reflect on some assumptions about privilege.
3) Come up with ideas on how to take action within one's respective student organizations.
