Event description
Unconscious Bias (UB) is one part of the overall Diversity and Inclusion work across ACSA organization.
 We look forward to welcoming you to the Unconscious Bias Training March 30, 2019. The planning has been very deliberate and intentional in planning this day.  I am hopeful that the we will begin a journey in which you will leave reflecting on your own biases and a deeper understanding of how biases can have negative or positive consequences. This day promises to provide an interactive, thought-provoking training that can help strengthen the organizational culture!
What is unconscious bias? Bias is a prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another usually in a way that’s considered to be unfair. Biases may be held by an individual, group, or institution and can have negative or positive consequences. There are types of biases
1.   Conscious bias (also known as explicit bias) and
2.    Unconscious bias (also known as implicit bias) 
 The team will:

examine their own unconscious bias and perpetual filters in order to minimize their impact in serving ACSA members
identify how this work directly supports and aligns with the Mission of ACSA
be equipped with deeper understanding and tools to cultivate our diverse membership


Reflect and identify your next step in your personal journey of equity growth. Examine what does this look like and what will be your areas of focus?

The team will create a structured selection process for recruiting new Academy directors and/or academy presenters that reduces the likelihood of bias and increases objectivity and transparency.
