October 25, 2022, 10:00 am to 11:30 am CTBias is universal. We all have bias whether it is 'towards' people like us or 'against' people who are not like us. Despite these universal truths, addressing and limiting our bias to prevent us from harming each other still feels elusive. This training seeks to answer the following questions:
- How does bias form?
- How can I lessen my own bias?
- What should I do if I have accidentally offended someone?
- Should I be worried about "cancel culture"?
