Understanding that biases are active in all human interactions is essential. In this workshop, we will explore assessing organizational and sector bias as well as implicit bias we carry as individuals in a workplace. Specifically, we will examine bias in hiring and also in assigning work and leadership roles. BRIDGE’s focus is on supporting non-profit managers and leaders in navigating your biases and identifying resources or diverse teams to provide antidotes to biases in projects or biases that will exist on homogeneous teams. A personal bias, simply a preference, can disrupt work or set shared goals and vision backwards. Having a culture that is prepared to examine bias in all interactions and planning is essential.

Join us for a workshop presented by Gwendolyn VanSant, CEO and Founding Director of BRIDGE. Founded in 2007, BRIDGE (dba Multicultural BRIDGE) is a grassroots organization dedicated to advancing equity and justice by promoting cultural competence, positive psychology, and mutual understanding and acceptance. The organization acts as a catalyst for change through collaboration, education, training, dialogue, fellowship and advocacy.
