Implicit Bias – 1 SW Ethics CEU Approved

September 17 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Many clients with disabilities and from other diverse populations are impacted by implicit bias in the workplace, community, and within our own service settings. This 1-hour virtual training will assist professionals in overcoming ethical obstacles involving implicit bias by increasing multi-cultural competencies and providing best practices.


We have an ethical obligation to reduce our implicit bias, so as not to serve as an additional barrier to clients accessing and obtaining equitable healthcare, employment, and other services or even putting your professional relationship at risk. This interactive presentation will demonstrate how to overcome this obstacle including, but not limited to: differentiating explicit versus implicit bias, various examples of implicit bias with historical context, identifying ethical risks and implications for professionals, tangible methods to identify and address our own implicit bias to reduce disparities in healthcare service delivery and access, etc. We will end with a facilitated discussion because hearing from other professionals within the field is the best way to find new ideas and resources for assisting our clients!
