First Take / Second Look: Exploring Unconscious Bias

Please join your Berkeley Law colleagues for a facilitated interactive workshop led by the Campus Multicultural Education Program (MEP) on workplace diversity.

First Take/Second Look engages participants in a discussions regarding our behaviors that might be problematic for others, as well as what to do about situations where we may be on the receiving end of biased behavior.

The outcomes of the workshop are:

  • To understand what Unconscious Bias is
  • To reveal the impacts and consequences of Unconscious Bias
  • To review how Unconscious Bias happens here on campus
  • To be able to take actions in response to Unconscious Bias

Like all of the MEP workshops, First Take/Second Look will use experiential learning techniques including small and large group interactions and discussions. Further, the workshop uses activities that provide a common experience for the group, and provide ideas for use in everyday work in a diverse environment like Cal. Resources are also discussed, so participants can connect with other offices and opportunities at Cal.

This is the second of three MEP trainings to be held at Berkeley Law. Those who complete of all three trainings will earn an MEP Certificate.
