Thrive@UW-Madison: Expanding Self-Knowledge to Create Inclusive Environments  (back)
 
Description:
Note: This is an all day session that combines two courses: Expanding Self-Knowledge to Adapt and Thrive and Creating an Inclusive Work Environment.

Description:
In this course, you are invited to explore your identity and lived experience. We will learn about the cycle of socialization to understand how our identity affects our worldview. Lastly, participants will develop skills to notice when we start to make assumptions about our observations. In the afternoon, you will define inclusion, reflect on unconscious bias, and consider how microaggressions impact others. Lastly, we will explore how one might respond when a microaggression happens in the workplace. We will break for lunch from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. You are welcome to bring your lunch, or eat at a local eatery.
