Implicit bias refers to the perceptions, outlooks, beliefs and/or stereotypes that affect our actions unconsciously. In this two-part interactive workshop, sponsored by The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd Baptized for Life Committee, Dr. Elizabeth Schlosser will lead us through a faith-based approach to understanding that we all have implicit biases and most go unaware that we have them. We will engage participants through activities, conversation, and by taking the Harvard Race Implicit Association Test (race IAT) with the intention of bringing awareness to implicit bias, followed by proven strategies and recommendations to mitigate biases.
Workshop is intended for clergy, vestry, standing committee, staff and lay members of the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast who are interested in living out their baptismal covenant more fully by understanding, identifying and diminishing implicit bias. Clergy will receive 2.5 CEUs.
Workshop will be held from 5:30 pm to 6:45 pm CDT on August 4 and 5 online. Internet connection is needed. For the best possible experience, a desktop or laptop computer is recommended, as participants will be asked to take the Harvard Race Implicit Association Test (race IAT) during the course of the workshop.
Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom meeting link.
