CSU’s Got Talent: Overcoming & Understanding Implicit Bias in Higher Education & the Workplace

While most people in the United States sincerely reject prejudice and discrimination, many of us exhibit patterns of unwitting bias in our thoughts, feelings, and actions and displays of explicit intergroup hostility and division are increasingly visible as well. This interactive session will explore the social, cultural, and psychological origins of intergroup biases, and the most problematic effects such biases can have in higher education and the workplace. We will also explore strategies that individuals and institutions of higher learning can employ to combat prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination.

CSU’s Got Talent Online Training: Leveraging Positivity

There are moments in ordinary days we dread: moments of difficulty, confrontation and unwelcome change. In this moment of COVID-19, with its extraordinary pressures and upheavals, this remains true. We still must acknowledge when our colleagues or family are behaving badly, or when we have let others down, and work toward change. And we continue to be presented with the opportunity that has always been available to humanity throughout time: the chance to become our better selves. Our conversation, based on the science of positivity psychology and resilience, allows us to navigate these moments with increasing clarity and capacity and a bit more ease. You’ll learn the perspectives and tools that enable us to build resilience, no matter how challenging the moment.

This course will take place Thursday, May 28 from 10:00am-11:00am. All CSU Faculty & Staff are invited to attend this free webcast.
