Session 1.0 — Awareness (4-5pm)
The goal of this interactive training is to provide participants with a basic awareness of cultural diversity as well as how culture influences the workplace, campus and clinical care environment at Washington University School of Medicine. The class is a combination of experiential and didactic training designed to:
- Define diversity, equity and inclusion
- Communicate the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives to the university
- Explore the impact of exclusion
- Understand the importance of being an ally.
Facilitators provide experiential activities that align with materials from the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) to demonstrate how unconscious bias is something that every individual holds. The goal of this interactive training is to highlight the concept of unconscious bias, how it influences individuals on a daily basis, and provides tangible tools for mitigating unconscious bias.
