Racism is complex and is influenced by a range of historical, social, political and economic factors. It takes different forms in different contexts. An understanding of the nature of racism is essential in order to recognize and counter it successfully.

Racism comes from a false set of beliefs that one’s own group is superior and has the right to dominate other groups. Domination gives one group privilege, and the other group experiences discrimination. This false belief system is created and sustained by society through systemic, institutional and individual practices. Racism cannot exist if we don’t support it.

Unpacking Unconscious Bias @Work

Research has shown that underrepresented groups are more likely to face systemic barriers (such as more expectation to sit on committees) that limit their lab time, result in less research funding and contend with the view that their publications are less significant.

Also, research identifies that theoretical awareness alone isn't enough to combat harmful biases. In this interactive workshop, we challenge everyone to unpack their own biases through a whole lot of aha moments while empowering people with practical debiasing strategies.   

This workshop is ideal for all members of your organization.
