Implicit bias workshops for healthcare
Implicit biases affect our unconscious thinking and decision-making, and it's an individual's responsibility to unearth and mitigate biases before they affect others. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion offers an interactive, two-hour workshop, designed for WSU healthcare faculty, staff, and students.
As of June 1, 2022, the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) requires implicit bias training for healthcare professionals. This event fulfills that requirement of up to 2 hours.

Data from Previous Workshops
During the 2022-2023 academic year over 150 individuals participated in this workshop. An analysis of pre- and post-workshop surveys indicated a statistically significant difference displaying that attendees developed an increased 1) conceptual understanding of implicit bias (e.g. what is implicit bias? how does it affect thinking and behavior?) and 2) personal understanding of implicit bias (e.g. how are implicit biases related to my life and worldview)
Additionally, we are committed to providing learning opportunities that make a difference. In an effort to be transparent about the impact of this work, we have provided cumulative data from 2022-2023 participants.
