Transformational Learning: Getting in Touch with our Everyday Bias

Events around us are interpreted through a lens shaped by our beliefs and culture. This interpretive lens unknowingly constitutes a bias through which we view the world. Having a bias is seen as something ‘some people’ have, yet, is inherent in our everyday actions. In this interactive workshop based on Howard Ross’ work, you will learn to harness your biases to create actions that result in a more inclusive and respectful learning environment.

This workshop is part of Diversity Week at the University of Calgary which runs from March 20 to 24, 2017. Visit the Diversity Week website for more information.
