Place: Virtual – Via Zoom
Presenter: Gerardo Ochoa—Associate Vice President, Retention and Student Success Linfield University
Topic: As the demographics of our communities continue to change, employees at every level need the skillset to manage difference. This interactive experiential session focuses on the implicit attitudes, behaviors, or stereotypes that may influence how we engage with individuals and/or groups and make decisions in the workplace. The session provides an introductory exploration of the intersection of privilege, cognitive and structural bias, and micro and macroaggressions. The session reinforces the importance of having cultural agility and empathy. Participants will walk away with tangible tools for interrupting microaggressions and begin working on an individualized Diversity Equity & Inclusion Professional Experiential Plan.
Cost: Free to members & $25 for non-members
