Increasing self-awareness of implicit biases that may impact perspective-taking, emotional regulation and communication is vital for professional success.

After attending this GPPD, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize and identify implicit bias. 
  • Overcome barriers and attain skills in effective communication strategies that intersect with cultural sensitivity. 
  • Mitigate conflicts and threats along the lines of gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, etc.
