Description

Have you ever been worried that people who are unaware of their bias are making decisions that affect your future? For youth with disabilities preparing to transition into post-secondary settings, worry and fear that decisions made may be tainted by bias can be overwhelming. For leaders in education and in industries employing people with disabilities, it is critical to understand 1) implicit bias, 2) the impact of bias, and 3) strategies for interrupting bias. Participants will learn how to consider bias through the Ladder of Inference - a mental model to help interrupt implicit bias. Participants will also walk through the Continuum of Proficiency, and the five Essential Elements of Cultural Competence.
