Nelson Hall 2405

The first session of the Poole Pack Development Series will be led by Tayah Butler and discuss unconscious bias in the workplace. The goal of this session is to illuminate bias that can affect our working relations in order to help mitigate the effects of unconscious bias in our words and actions. Butler and the participants will be utilizing the “comfort zone” method to:

  • Understand why implicit attitudes are not a reflection of your personal character
  • Learn how to “unlearn” biases 
  • Learn when your actions become a reflection of how much you value those impacted by your unconscious attitudes
  • Be able to recognize when your stress levels reach “panic zone”, which will help you stay open to learning and growing
