Unconscious Bias Workshops via Zoom

Is your team working from home?

Start, or keep your Diversity Equity & Inclusion conversation alive by scheduling an online workshop session. Raise awareness of unconscious bias and give your people skills to address their own bias. Start a conversation about how to be an ally and how to speak up against stereotypes and demeaning comments.

Workshop topics include:

  • Disrupting Unconscious Bias
  • Micro-aggressions you might not notice (but everyone else does)
  • Communicating Respectfully to Create an Inclusive Workplace

All SunShower Workshops via Zoom sessions are private, password-protected, and invite-only. If you have another technology platform you prefer, such as Adobe Connect or Webex, we are happy to work with you to use the platform of your choice. We don’t want to lecture anyone. So, we’ll work with you to prepare for breakout groups to facilitate smaller discussions. As we all know, having a chance to discuss with peers can have a big impact on how “sticky” the learning is.

We’ll use the latest technology to keep people engaged – chat and live polling are a great way to keep people involved. SunShower’s Workshops via Zoom are unique because we bring the entertainment factor. We’ll play videos from our award-winning e-Learning courses and start the conversation.

Our Unconscious Bias Zoom Workshops are Designed to:

  • Increase the awareness of implicit bias and its consequence in the workplace.
  • Help your team understand the impact of stereotypes and biased statements, even when they’re said unintentionally.
  • Support inclusiveness by sharing concrete skills that everyone can learn and practice to disrupt their biases.

Sunshower’s DEI Workshops Via Zoom

All of our Workshops are interactive, engaging, and sure to start new conversations. Not only do we teach the science about how the brain works and raise awareness about the impact of implicit bias, we also get your people thinking through the use of realistic video scenarios. Breakout rooms for small discussion and then back to the general session. Online workshop sessions range from 60 minutes to 3 hours or we can schedule on multiple days.
