One of TIDE’s priorities is to offer unconscious bias education sessions to faculty groups who are interested in learning more about how to identify and mitigate unconscious bias in their work. Members of TIDE have volunteered to make themselves available to provide talks and workshops and to share resources and recommended practices with their colleagues.

The format of the sessions (i.e., short talk, long talk, talk and workshop) can be tailored to the needs of the unit and the anticipated size and nature of the audience (e.g., Faculty Council, Departmental meetings or seminars, search committee meetings).

The talk content is based on a standard framework with a focus on data related to bias and steps to ameliorate negative effects of bias.

The workshop is a scenario-based analysis of how bias can manifest in the context of decision making.

Upcoming Workshops

TIDE regularly holds standing sessions for U of T Faculty and Graduate Students. 
As these workshops become available, session and registration details will be shared here.

Unconscious Bias 101: Workshop for U of T Faculty

Oct. 27 2022, 1-3pm

Understanding unconscious bias is an important first step to making structural and personal changes that support equity and inclusion. This workshop is intended for faculty at U of T. 

The purpose of this workshop is to:

  • Explore the existing evidence on representation and bias
  • Explore case studies that illustrate how bias might intersect with various aspects of faculty experience, both within academia and beyond (e.g., everyday interactions, grant applications, interviews, award nominations, committee decisions) 
  • Provide an overview of how bias can affect decision-making
  • Suggest strategies for reducing the effect of bias on structural and personal practices
