Unconscious Bias and Microaggressions Training

Sponsored by Human Resources
Wednesday, December 11, 2019: 1:00PM to 5:00PM
Room: Black Box Theater

Everyone has unconscious bias. It means that our brains are predisposed to making quick judgments based on deeply rooted subconscious attitudes. Every employee brings this bias with them into the workplace. It shapes the way we think, act and interact with others. While these deep-set attitudes are difficult to eliminate completely, it is possible to raise awareness of our bias and discover strategies to move towards conscious action.


Join a representative from KEPRO, Loyola’s Employee Assistance Program,  for this powerful and thought provoking workshop that will enable participants to discover how the mind functions and use powerful demonstrations to illustrate the prevalence of unconscious bias. It will reveal the ways that people commonly make quick assumptions and judgments about others and the impact this can have on the employee and the organization.

How participants will benefit

  • Fully understand the concept of unconscious bias and how this differs from prejudice and stereotypes
