Implicit Bias Trainings

The Implicit Bias Trainings are currently oversubscribed. Three additional sessions will be offered in August and September, and the dates and times will be announced in July.

The PA PQC is pleased to invite PA PQC teams to attend AccessMatters’ live virtual trainings on “Cultivating Awareness of Racial Microaggressions” during one of the following times:

Register here for Wednesday, July 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Register here for Monday, July 20 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

In this training, participants will be introduced to ways in which implicit bias, also known as microaggressions, can cause a negative impact. Microaggressions are often unintentional and undetected, although the detrimental psychological and physiological effects have been documented through the framework of minority stress. Using lecture, media, and experiential activities, the facilitator(s) will guide participants through effective recognition and response options.

By the end of the training, participants will have increased insight into the prevalence of racial microaggressions, understanding of how to reduce the frequency of racial microaggressions, and skills for implementing a reparative response after committing a racial microaggression.

At the end of this training, participants will be able to:
• Describe implicit racial bias and the phenomenon of racial microaggressions
• Analyze the impact of racial microaggressions on Black, Indigenous, and People of Color
• Reflect on personal experiences of learning about racism, implicit racial bias, and racial microaggressions
• Practice implementing CPR: The Racial Microaggressions Reparative Response Model
