This workshop experience is designed to be a journey from “self” to “others” as we explore implicit  bias, also known as unconscious bias, from the understanding WE ALL POSSESS BIAS. How such is  manifested differs between those who choose to ‘check it’ and those who say, “I don’t have it.” In  order to embrace such a vulnerable topic, participants will engage by way of an indigenous practice  called “circle” – deemed as a Restorative Justice practice where all are seen and heard.    During this 1-day, two-part experience, participants will…  ● Use the circle process to establish norms and build community  ● Navigate their own implicit biases by   ○ participating in the Implicit Association Test  ○ participating in meta-cognitive writing activities  ○ discussing film clips and case studies  ○ taking part in small/whole group discussions  ● Learn how to self-check their bias – seeing each as a teachable moment   ● Learn how to navigate moments of perceived bias.

The workshop will be facilitated by Udoro Gatewood with REY, Restorative Empowerment for Youth.  They are a Houston-based program that has teamed up with UT Restorative Justice Institute to bring quality Implicit Bias training to Texas.
