Creating inclusive environments that support diverse populations is a rewarding, though at times challenging, endeavor. Furthermore, without preparation we may find ourselves ill-equipped to address in-the-moment threats to inclusive and welcoming environments.
In this workshop, participants will engage in activities designed to help them think about how to create inclusive environments in a variety of settings, including local SPS meetings, active learning or collaborative group work in class, academic settings outside of the classroom, and their local communities. Workshop facilitators will utilize think-pair-share activities, practice scenarios, and modeling to walk participants through strategies to mitigate the impact of bias.
