This Special DEI Event will explore implicit bias and how it manifests in our thinking and actions as human beings. The brain naturally organizes information by looking for patterns, associations, and categories. Implicit bias is influenced by our background, culture, and experiences. Yet implicit thinking becomes a hindrance as we live and work in an increasingly diverse society. This Special DEI Event will evoke awareness on identifying biases, keeping them in check, and evolving beyond them.
Takeaways from the Event:
- Gain awareness of implicit bias and how it manifests in harmful ways
- Learn how to support clients in identifying and navigating beyond their biases
- Understand how ICF Ethics and Core Competencies support the awareness of implicit bias and how this awareness can be integrated into our coaching practice
