1:00 PM


April 5: 1:00PM EST - 4:00PM EST

April 6: 1:00PM EST - 4:00PM EST


Zoom Virtual Platform


The workshop's primary goal is to build upon and enhance awareness and knowledge of how bias and equity-related topics impact an organization's engagement, decision-making, and cultural practices. It highlights how attitudes, stereotypes and cultural preferences can lead to feelings, actions, behaviours and decisions that can benefit some within the workforce but impede others from succeeding, such as not having a voice or a seat at the decision-making table.

Through practical insights and relevant examples, participants will acquire knowledge and an appreciation for the benefits of maintaining more equitable, diverse, inclusive, and unbiased relationships. They will also deepen their learning by discussing the adverse effects caused when equity, diversity, inclusion, anti-oppression, and accessibility are not a focus, including inequity, lack of inclusion, and compromised retention, engagement, innovation, teamwork, comradery, and performance. The session explores and addresses common biases and phobias within the workplace, including racism, ableism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and Islamophobia, and how they influence cultural elements such as power, privilege, allyship, stereotypes, microaggressions and intersectionality.

Participants will examine opportunities to understand, identify and address oppression through their interactions within their teams and across organizations. The facilitator will provide practical strategies to minimize the impact of our blind spots and the ability to identify bias patterns to enable everyone to bring their authentic self to work. The session provides insights into why and how EDI is a culture change journey, the importance of transition planning, and tangible actions to create and build momentum.

The workshop is interactive and engaging within a safe, respectful, and inclusive space for learning.

  • A deep dive into understanding unconscious bias across various workplace cultures and moving from unconscious bias to conscious inclusion.
