Develop the skills to effectively respond to unchecked biases
A 1-Day Training on: 'Inclusiveness for better study results'
Given powerful forces like social media, globalisation and migration, more and more individuals in university experience an enriching and fruitful environment. However, some find it very difficult to successfully navigate highly diverse environments, especially when topics such as cultural differences, politics, gender and religious practices are discussed. Even the most well meaning can make painful mistakes that can lead to cultural conflict and misunderstanding. In this training, you are guided through some of the most challenging topics in the field of inclusion, such as micro-aggression, cultural appropriation and implicit bias. Furthermore you will be trained in how to create an inclusive environment in the 21st century.
You will develop
- Awareness of own unchecked biases
- Understanding about what micro-aggression is, how this toxic environment affects those who experience it
- Understanding of implicit bias of others, and the negative impact that it has in future careers
- Understanding of why cultural appropriation is highly upsetting for various cultural groups and how to prevent it
- Skills on how to foster an inclusive and culturally sensitive environment
