WS022 - Bias aware practices: moving beyond unconscious bias training
Convened by Donna Hurford (University of Southern Denmar, Denmark)

Acknowledging our biases is uncomfortable. But unless we do so, we limit novelty and we risk affecting others and ourselves through discrimination and stereotypes. Without bias mitigation, institutional structures and practices undermine solidarity, peace and social justice. During this workshop, participants will be invited to evaluate approaches which may raise awareness of structural and individual biases, and ways to mitigate their effects. This workshop is not one-off unconscious bias training, about which there is increasing caution, but rather the opportunity to review and share approaches and ideas which may be transferrable interculturally and globally (Atewologun et al., 2018; Noon, 2018).

No abstract submssion possible for Workshop Sessions.
