Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington on Overcoming Prejudices to Improve Connections
The words implicit bias and micro aggressions are popular in many higher education spaces. While many individuals are familiar with the terms, how to discover, engage, explore and recover when they’ve occurred remains a challenge. As campuses work to increase demographic diversity and create a sense of belonging, micro aggressions and implicit biases will be a part of the mix.
Join Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington on October 12, 2023 as he helps you continue to define and identify micro aggressions and implicit biases when they occur around and within your organization, department and institution. You will explore tools for engaging micro aggressions and implicit bias, as well as strategies and best practices for responding to and recovering from perpetuating them.
Discriminatory behavior is usually clear. Micro aggressions and implicit bias are often harder to identify and the person responsible may not even realize that their behavior is harmful. Work toward building your capacity and an empowered approach to disrupting micro aggressions and implicit bias to foster an environment of equity and belonging.
Get crucial, actionable takeaways to help you:
- Acknowledge your own biases within your thoughts and interactions with others – recognize how your identities play a role in your biases and develop strategies to disrupt implicit bias.
- Define and recognize micro aggressions in order to interrupt them – limit misunderstandings, conflict and emotional strain within relationships and interactions to improve your colleagues’ overall workplace satisfaction, sense of belonging and feelings of personal value to your department and your institution.
- Build capacity and an empowered approach to disrupting micro aggressions and implicit bias – implement strategies to foster an environment of equity and belonging.
- Respond and recover from perpetuating a micro aggression or implicit bias – keep your community intact and help everyone continue to learn and grow when mistakes are made.
- Recognize the intent vs. impact in any interaction.
Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington, Pronouns (He/Him/His) serves as the President & Founder of the Washington Consulting Group (WCG). WCG was named by the Economist as one of the Top 10 Global Diversity Consultants in the world.
