In our Managing Your Prejudices Video Workshop, Gail Price-Wise, M.S., Harvard School of Public Health, educates employees about cultural tolerance, trust and communication. It is through multicultural understanding that we can learn to avoid cultural disparities, unintentional bias and mistakes. Learn about unconscious prejudice and implicit bias and how we can introduce tolerance and harmony into our personal and business interactions. In a cross-cultural medical setting, a medical interpreter can help improve communication, compliance and outcome. Our Managing Your Prejudices Workshop will help your employees be more effective in their cultural responsiveness.
Why is the Managing Your Prejudices Video Workshop important?
- Stereotypes are true of some individuals in a group and not true of others in the group. This is a central message of the workshop.
- Unless you are an academy award winning actor, people sense if you are prejudiced against them. This workshop will help participants recognize their prejudices and see others as unique individuals, rather than as stereotypes.
- When someone accidentally says or does something that offends someone else, it can be called a micro-aggression. Participants of the workshop will learn to avoid committing micro-aggressions and to respond appropriately when they are the object of a micro-aggression.
- Patients are more likely to adhere to medical advice if they feel that their health providers like and respect them. Improving adherence is essential for reducing hospital readmissions and improving clinical outcomes.
- Organizations are stronger when employees work together as a team, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, body type, physical ability, and other characteristics.
- Businesses that make their customers feel welcome are more profitable.
Managing Your Prejudices Video Workshop participants will laugh, surprise themselves, and really think about prejudice in a new way.
