Level 5 – Bias & Cultural Competencies – Two Days

Description of Course

The course has a heavy emphasis on practical skills that Title IX Coordinators, Administrators, and Deputies need to fulfill their duties to their campuses, and take their expertise to the next level. A major component of the two-day course will focus on how bias, either conscious or unconscious, can impact our decision-making. The course will include an in-depth exploration of defining and reducing microaggressions, coupled with a train-the-trainer focus, offering attendees practical tools and teaching materials that can be applied to their schools and organizations. Because bias and microaggressions can often lead to heated debates on campus and lead to threats of violence, attendees will be coached on de-escalating a potential crisis.
