In long-term care it is increasingly apparent that who is on shift is just as important as how many staff are on shift. Quality care is difficult to achieve when we do not routinely engage with one another in a positive, or civil, manner.

How to Recognize and Manage Unconscious Bias

Unconscious Bias is a topic that – though not new – is certainly getting more attention recently with the focus on the importance of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. All of us carry unconscious bias in us, and this alone is not necessarily a bad thing. However, recognizing and working to address it is critical to ensure equity for all groups.

Through a mix of presentation, storytelling, and interactive exercises, this session explores how to recognize various types of bias, the impact that unconscious bias can have (particularly for black, Indigenous and people of color), and strategies to notice one’s own biases to create new patterns of responding. Additionally, this session presents the concept of psychological safety and climates of authenticity by presenting the theoretical value of these ideas, and then invites participants to experientially explore them in the session through reflection and dialogue.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the difference between explicit/conscious bias vs. implicit/unconscious bias
  • Acknowledge that we all have unconscious biases and learn to recognize examples
  • Learn about the neuroscience behind unconscious biases
  • Practice challenging stereotypes and questioning assumptions by speaking up
  • Practice responding to someone pointing out a (micro)aggression/(micro)inequity
