  1. Sep 29, 2022, 1:00pm - 2:30pm

    This 90-minute workshop will provide an introduction to unconscious associations that can lead to an affinity toward or prejudice against some people. We will explore how our socialization process leads to the formation of conscious and unconscious associations, stereotypes, and prejudices that influence how we treat and view others in unintended ways. Participants will learn common ways that bias shows up in daily life and identify strategies that can help reduce the impact of implicit biases.

  2. Sep 30, 2022, 9:00am - 10:30am

    Pronouns are tools for effective and efficient communication, and their intentional or unintentional misuse can cause confusion and harm. Using gender-affirming language such as pronouns and avoiding unnecessary use of other gendered words is essential to creating spaces that are safe, inviting, and inclusive of people of all genders.

  3. Oct 3, 2022, 10:00am - 12:00pm

    Have you ever engaged in a conversation about an uncomfortable or sensitive topic with someone who is very different from you and didn't know how to approach it? Conversations between people with different views and lived experiences can go awry and lead to frustration and alienation. In this 2-hour workshop participants will be provided with strategies for engaging in challenging conversations. The latter part of the program provides participants with an opportunity to apply what they have learned in a breakout room activity.

  4. Oct 14, 2022, 10:00am - 11:30am

    This 90-minute program provides an overview of best practices for recruiting a diverse candidate pool and equitably evaluating them. Participants will examine the role that various forms of bias can play in screening applicants and identify ways that privilege creates an unlevel competitive job market. The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences requires that all individuals serving on CFAES search committees complete this program every 2 years. Please note: this workshop will not be recorded.

  5. Oct 19, 2022, 9:00am - 10:30am

    Although transgender and non-binary people have gained significant visibility over the past decade, numerous misconceptions and stereotypes still exist and create environments that are unwelcoming or even hostile to people with gender identities that fall outside of cisnormativity (i.e., the belief that being cisgender, or not transgender, is the “normal” and “correct” way of being).
