Windsor: 01.21.21 *VIRTUAL* Unintentional Racism: Managing a Diverse Workforce

To help foster a safe, inclusive and productive workplace, it is essential to understand how our decisions are often impacted by unintentional racism. In this practical and timely presentation Sreya Roy provides an understanding of how unconscious bias, micro-aggressions, micro-invalidations, and subconscious stereotyping impact our decisions and actions at work. The session focuses on the employer’s obligations when managing a diverse workforce. It discusses recent court and tribunal decisions, policies, guidelines, and strategies to mitigate the impact of unintentional racism in the workplace.
