BESTraining Implicit Bias: "Put A Spotlight On Your Blind Spots"

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventContribution at workshop, seminar, course


Our judgment is often clouded and influenced by more things than we can imagine and our intentions and our impact are not always the same. In three workshop sessions, students learned how to finetune their assumptions about themselves and others and how to grow into a better version of themselves. They made their first steps towards this goal by going through the following four elements: 1 Activating a growth mindset: A growth mindset creates the space for improvement and flourishment instead of being dominated by judgment and shame. 2 Seeing the ordinary privilege: Recognizing our privilege and putting it to good use on behalf of others. 3 Willful awareness: Noticing in ourselves the behaviors and choices which interrupt who we would like to be. 4 Engagement: Reflecting and identifying the actions that will help us move toward the person we would like to be.
