CBD2020: Becoming Conscious of Unconscious Bias:Contemplative practice to deepen respect & inclusion

In this session, we will explore everyday implicit, or unconscious, biases in the workplace: how to identify bias, how to address bias, and ultimately, how to make our unconscious biases conscious. We will cover the literature on bias and inclusion in education, academic medicine specifically, and the workplace more generally as we work together to building a more inclusive culture in our own spaces.

Quick Bytes: Bouncing Back, Bouncing Forward: Resourcing Ourselves for Resilience

You may have heard that resilience is about “bouncing back” after an experience of failure or adversity, but did you know that you can “bounce” forward? In this presentation we will discuss definitions of resilience, ways to respond resiliently to life’s challenges and consider what it means to cultivate the resources that are the foundation for resilience. Additionally, we will learn the importance of having a growth mindset AND opportunity mindset when facing stress which together build our failure tolerance, a key ingredient in resilience.
