Culture Matters: Managing Unconscious Bias

Feb 7, 2018 (All day)
4-H Building 2201 Fred Taylor Dr., Columbus, OH 43210
Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is the capability to relate and work effectively in culturally diverse situations. It involves going beyond existing notions of cultural sensitivity and awareness in order to work and relate with people and projects across cultural contexts. Organizations with culturally intelligent students, staff, and leaders are more likely to accomplish their mission in today’s multicultural, globalized world. The first step in this process is to understand the effect of unconscious bias on workplace performance.

Through a highly interactive half-day workshop participants will:

  •  increase awareness of their own cultural identity
  •  understand the sources of unconscious bias and how bias can influence interaction with others
  •  develop strategies to combat bias and to use differences synergistically to improve intercultural effectiveness.

Participants will complete the Cultural Values Profile and Implicit Association Tests before participating in the workshop

his workshop will be facilitated by Jera Niewoehner-Green and Mary Rodriguez.
