Understanding unconscious bias is an important first step to making structural and personal changes that support equity and inclusion. This workshop is intended for faculty at U of T.

The purpose of this workshop is to:

  • Explore the existing evidence on representation and bias
  • Explore case studies that illustrate how bias might intersect with various aspects of faculty experience, both within academia and beyond (e.g., everyday interactions, grant applications, interviews, award nominations, committee decisions)
  • Provide an overview of how bias can affect decision-making
  • Suggest strategies for reducing the effect of bias on structural and personal practices

This is an online event, which will be facilitated by Professor Ernie Lam (Associate Dean, Graduate Education, Graduate Program Director, Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, Professor, Dentistry)
