Brief, everyday exchanges can sometimes carry denigrating messages to certain individuals whether there was a harmful intention or not. A seemingly innocent joke or gesture can still reinforce stereotypes toward socially or historically marginalized groups. These are examples of microaggressions that reinforce systems of power surrounding race, gender, age, ability, and other identities. Therefore, it is important to become aware of one’s own bias and how it impacts others. Intentionally reflecting on one’s views will help one to change the lens they use to view the world. 

This webinar will explore how culture impacts one’s work, school, and community as well as how understanding, accepting, and acknowledging these differences can help improve society. Attendees will learn about tools and techniques to work with families from diverse backgrounds by engaging in introspective activities. Worksheets will also be provided to help attendees in their work and can be used both during and after the webinar has ended.  

Overall, this webinar will provide attendees with a thought-provoking and interactive  opportunity to explore and understand one’s own biases so that they can recognize and improve workplace interactions.  

By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to: 

  • Recognize how culture impacts the workplace  

  • Understand one’s own conscious and unconscious biases, and 

  • Implement strategies to address discriminatory practices  

Approved for 1.0 hour of CFLE continuing education.
