Unpacking Bias and Anti-Oppression Training
This three-session training is open to all students from both undergraduate and graduate programs. One must complete the entire program to earn a certificate. The goal of the program is to help participants on their journey to becoming accomplices in a more just, equitable and diverse society. Before you can ally yourself with the work of dismantling oppression, you must first understand your own biases — this work starts with yourself. The training includes:
Session I – Unpacking Bias. We will examine conscious (explicit) and unconscious (implicit) bias, discuss some examples, and examine how our personal biases impact the way we interact with one another. Unpacking biases is a way to both recognize and acknowledge our biases and start the work of anti-oppression; learning allyship skills.
Session II – Anti-Oppression. We will talk about the many ways we can engage in anti-oppression work. Much of the work is a personal, individual process to recognize the many ways oppression is ingrained into our culture and how we can dismantle systemic racism and other -isms, to foster a more equitable and just society.
Session III – Dialogue. This dialogue is an opportunity to deeply examine what we’ve learned in Sessions I and II and start the journey toward applying that knowledge to practice.
