GIP Workshop Series: Understanding Allyship and Responding to Microaggressions through Bystander Intervention Part One
Please join us for part 1 of this workshop on allyship and responding to microaggressions through bystander intervention, sponsored by the Group on Institutional Planning (GIP). Experiences of bias, harassment and microaggressions is an expanding area of focus for faculty, administrators and leaders in the health professions as awareness of the enormous prevalence of these experiences has increased. Research on microaggressions and bias has shown to have significant negative impacts on individual confidence, physical health, and overall wellbeing. Therefore, more education and training on responding to microaggressions through bystander intervention is sorely needed in academic medicine.

The first part of this workshop will begin with basic information on implicit bias as a function of power and privilege, as well as behavior strategies for developing allies. Participants will learn that a culture of respect and accountability is created and maintained through everyday acts of allyship, small and large.

Please note this webinar is 90 minutes.
