Implicit Bias Workshop

9 a.m.-12 p.m. | Friday, May 11
Tykeson Hall 207
Presenter: Erika McCalpine
Search Advocates who attend will receive 2 continuing education credits.

In this interactive workshop, we will examine implicit bias and show how it manifests itself in our society. Using academic research and real life scenarios, we will untangle the knots that our bias often ties us in when making organizational decisions. We will work to expose what is buried in us while being given tools to aid in mitigating bias in our workplace and hopefully, our day-to-day lives.

Social Justice Education Initiative Training

Session 2
June 6 and 7 (2-hour blocks)
June 8 (complete training in one 4-hour block)
Location: Tykeson Hall
Instructor: Jane Waite

The Social Justice Education Initiative for faculty and staff at OSU is an invitation to begin, or continue, your social justice and equity journey. With humor, empathy, and expertise we will engage in a self-reflective process that helps us answer these important questions: What is the story of the current context in Oregon -- and how did we get here? How do you locate yourself in this story? Why does social justice matter? No preparation is needed beyond this principle, and lunch is provided.
