Virtual iLab 103: Barriers to Inclusion (Part 2)

  1. Thursday, March 4th, 202110:30am - 12:00pm


While iLab 101 and 102 help participants focus on developing cultural self-awareness and understanding their own identities and cultural learnings, iLab 103 examines barriers to inclusion that challenge our ability to build and sustain meaningful, equitable relationships and communities.  

Together we will, 

  • Examine barriers to inclusion such as Covering, Stereotype Threat, Bias & Microaggressions how they impact individuals, teams, and organizations
  • Explore Social Contact Theory as a method to reduce bias towards diverse identity groups 
  • Use the Harvard Implicit Association Assessment to explore individual biases
  • Identify strategies for discovering and managing unconscious bias and microinequities
  • Practice tools for courageous dialogue

Prequisites: iLab 101; iLab 102

Note: This semester, iLab will be offered virtually. The content of iLab 103 will be covered over two classes. If your schedule allows, please register for both classes.
