Understanding Bias and Building Cultural Competence

April 13, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Through this training, participants will gain the knowledge, skills, and ability to become culturally competent public health professionals, develop an understanding of the difference between implicit and explicit bias, increase self-awareness of how bias affects their own worldview, and explore “debiasing” techniques to unlearn implicit biases that may affect decision-making on behalf of marginalized and disadvantaged communities. Participants will also gain a greater understanding of how cultural competency can be applied at the micro level in one-on-one or small group interactions and at the macro level to build culturally competent organizations, programs and policies that are responsive to the contextual and structural factors that shape health outcomes for disadvantaged communities.
