How Bias Hurts: Understanding & Challenging Bias in our Communities

This interactive workshop will address how bias manifests in our learning and working spaces and can lead to harm. Participants will be encouraged to engage in discussion and share strategies and best practices for better understanding and challenging bias. Participants will also leave with tools and resources to apply and continue their learning. All knowledge levels are welcome and valued.

Shanice Nicole is a Black feminist educator, facilitator, writer, and (out)spoken word artist. Her writing and work explores race, mental health, sexuality, oppression, and freedom. Shanice is passionate about building community, connecting people with resources, and sharing knowledge. The words of her favourite poet Maya Angelou resonate deeply: “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
