Designing for Equity and Justice at Work: Addressing Implicit Bias

Tuesday, November 10 3:30-5:00  

 While designing our work lives for our own sense of purpose and play is essential for personal well-being, so is working in intentionally diverse, inclusive and equitable spaces. Study after study has shown that we all have implicit bias. As a distorting lens that influences the way we think and act in the world, implicit bias is a critical barrier when trying to create diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environments. 

This workshop explores the cycle of socialization in order to explore how we might uncover and address our own biases and contribute to dismantling oppressive systems and processes within our workplaces.

Elon Design Thinking Catalyst’s will help participants frame the role of bias in their own lives, explore its impact, and generate actionable opportunities for how they might contribute to redesigning oppressive processes and systems in order to foster greater diversity, equity, and inclusion at work.

Cocreated by the Center for Race, Ethnicity, & Diversity Education and the Center for Design Thinking.
