ATU Faculty and Staff Offered Educational Opportunity

Arkansas Tech University Campus Entrance Russellville

Arkansas Tech University will offer microaggression and cognitive bias education and training to its faculty and staff in November. 

This interactive experience is designed to create a shared and practical understanding of common cognitive biases that impact organizational culture, especially in the form of subtle and commonplace verbal, behavioral and environmental indignities that affect members of marginalized groups. This experience will also provide tools and strategies for identifying, mitigating and overcoming biases in ways that lead to psychologically safe and supportive work and learning environments.

Wednesday, Nov. 2
Session 1 (Ozark): 9-10:30 a.m.
