SESSION ONE | Introduction to Unconscious Bias
This session will provide an introduction to the concept of unconscious bias and how it presents itself in professional settings. You will learn about the impact of gendered, ableist and otherwise harmful language in day-to-day interactions. You will learn more about systemic barriers and biases that professionals from communities who have long been under-represented in the Canadian media system face on a regular basis. Leaders will come away from this session with tools they can use to better understand and help eliminate the presence of bias in their own organizations and workplaces.
