Course Overview:

This e-learning course kicks off by defining bias, stereotype, racism and microaggression. We'll then get into the impact of how these terms can affect your workplace and your own personal biases and how to overcome this to build a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace within your associations.

Next, we'll discuss what it means to create and build mentorship opportunities and how those relationships can foster growth for all included. From there, we'll delve into the importance of understanding your own personal biases and how identifying them can help you grow.

We'll follow this up by reflecting on your personal biases and how understanding them can help you move past them. Also, you will reflect on ways to foster an authentic work environment where all feel welcome to bring their authentic self to your association.
