After the introduction of implicit bias, this webinar will delve into its impact on our work as interpreters in healthcare settings.  This interactive session will help participants learn strategies for identifying and addressing their own biases.  Additionally, participants will have opportunities to discuss ways to easily introduce implicit bias into classrooms and trainings.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the definition of “unconscious / implicit bias” and its impact on our everyday interactions.

2.  Demonstrate techniques for identifying implicit biases and strategies for addressing these biases. 

3.  Discuss ways to introduce implicit bias into interpreter education programs.
