INCLUSION IN OUTDOOR RECREATION -EXAMINING CULTURE AND BIAS WORKSHOP
Presented by Parker McMullen-Bushman, EcoInclusive
This workshop introduces learners to the concepts of implicit bias and encourages learners to explore and reflect upon how personal values, biases and assumptions can impact the quality of daily work that we do. Building a more inclusive outdoor movement requires us to examine these deeply subconscious attitudes that span race, gender, appearance, age, wealth and much more. Through a series of exercises, discussions and self-reflective activities participants we will examine our personal cultural competence and, increasing our ability to understand, communicate with, and effectively interact with all people.
DURING OUR TIME TOGETHER WE WILL EXPLORE:
- Exploring the relationship between culture and bias.
- The definition of unconscious bias and the cognitive processes which enable it
- Exploring Systems of oppression- How are they set up? How do we perpetuate them?
