Diversity: Understanding Implicit Bias and Your Duty as a Union Representative

Register Online Here

This three-day course examines everyone’s implicit bias, and how it manifests in all aspects of the work that union representatives perform from processing grievances and engaging members to hiring union staff. “Implicit bias” is used to describe when we have attitudes towards people or associate stereotypes with them without our conscious knowledge. Economists, sociologists and psychologists have confirmed that our implicit biases often predict how we will behave more accurately than our conscious values, and how these biases have a negative impact on certain groups in society and in the workplace. View the announcement, here.
