Let's Practice Together!
  Guiding you toward more meaningful impact response

Assess. Prioritize. Respond. 

Identity-related bias incidents are expressed acts or interactions that individuals or groups experience negatively through the lenses of identity. These incidents impact sense of belonging and undermine efforts to build and sustain inclusive working, learning and living environments.

Bias Impact Response training proactively prepares you to respond with care and intentionality when harmful identity bases interactions impact the members of your community or organization. 


What Is Bias-Impact Response Training?

Learn practical and actionable skills

Identity-related incidents can range in issue area, severity and nature of impact, and response resource availability. Learn consistent and reliable impact response approaches that can be integrated into personal and organizational practices and procedures. 

Skill building with a dedicated community of practice

Bias impact response and support can challenge even the most experienced and skilled equity advocate. Learn and explore strategies and processes in a community of practitioners, leaders, and advocates committed to providing skilled, meaningful and restorative support.  

Go deeper, learn more, implement effectively

Bias impact response training offers more than a checklist of steps to follow. Learn to assess impact, identify options and resources, and coach others through a process that meets their needs and aligns with community or organizational commitments. 

Ongoing Resource and Support Access

Learning doesn’t stop when a course or workshop ends.  Bias Impact response training also includes opportunities to remain connected to the practtioner community via bi-monthly tabletop scenario sessions, cohort experiences, and the Bias Impact Response LinkedIn Peer Learning Community.
