Building on recently developed skill sets to speak up, 4.0 empowers participants to proactively combat bias and prejudicial statements/behaviors made on campus. Participants will engage in activities that assess:
- Where are we now?
The current state of diversity, equity and inclusion
- Where do we want to be?
What a warm, welcoming, diverse, and inclusive Washington University School of Medicine would look like
- What does it take to get there?
Identifying the challenges and opportunities to accomplish the diversity, equity and inclusion goals
How to attend
About 1.0 – 4.0
Diversity, equity and inclusion leaders provide a series of four one-hour group training sessions on the fundamentals of diversity education for departments, programs and other business units. Each session is designed to provide a greater understanding of:
- What diversity means and how to define it
- What aspects of diversity affect us (i.e., biases and prejudices)
- How biases and prejudices manifest in our day-to-day thoughts and actions
- How to recognize and mitigate biases and prejudices when we do encounter them
Facilitators use a standard format in each session that consists of psycho-educational presentations in the form of data from research presented in PowerPoint, and interactive, hands-on and experiential exercises to illuminate the concepts being presented.
