Target Audience: Designed for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of how biases affect all people and to ensure their decision-making processes, behaviors and relationships are not driven by biases.

This online, self paced course presents engaging video lessons as well as interviews with Canadians from all walks of life, holding space for honest discussions on internal and institutional biases and providing strategies on how to consciously push aside such biases so they have less influence on one’s behavior and feelings. Suitable for students and teachers in all disciplines,  this course has been  designed  to  offer  a reflective  and  introspective  look into  the  nature  of  unconscious biases  and  their subtle impacts on every facet of life.


OCT 24 at 4:00pm: LIVE ZOOM

During this engaging kick off session, your course facilitator will guide you through:

Identifying elements and characteristics of bias, recognizing cultural archetypes of individualism and collectivism, understanding how the brain learns culture and pinpointing personal triggers that reinforce our internal biases. These exercises will serve as a precursor and lay the foundations for the online learning component. Your course facilitator will support you in being part of a community of learners who will have access to a shared drive where resources will be provided for you.

Celebration of Learning and next steps

Celebration of Learning - We will have a wrap up session where participants will come together to reflect, invite inquiry and articulate commitments towards their own next steps in this learning.

It is our hope that participants will walk away able to implement some of these ideas to their daily practices.  

  • Understand and identify their own internal biases
  • Understand and identify institutional biases
  • Differentiate equality and equity
  • Recognize the relationship between bias and stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination
  • Discern the impact of internal and institutional biases on student success, behavior and relations
  • Devise an action plan to unlearn or at least actively and consciously push back their biases
