4 reviews for Unconscious Bias Train-the-Trainer for Healthcare Professionals

  1. Robert Hoffman, Vanderbilt University

    I learned to be reflective and open to my own limitations with bias. This course helped me understand how we function as groups of people and how to help our groups function in a better way. We are going to roll out what we’ve learned in this course in a very broad and deep way into Vanderbilt culture; something I think which will improve the way we do what we do.

  2. Monica Baskin, University of Alabama, Birmingham

    This training has been extremely impactful for me to understand unconscious bias and understand how that may show up for me as an individual and in interactions that we have in our departments, whether that be students to faculty, faculty to faculty, staff to faculty, and so forth. I will go back home and start training our leadership team. We will discuss our recruitment and talent management processes as well as everyday decisions we make, including strategic planning and where we focus our resources.

  3. Jim Montague, Harvard University

    Many members of our community have participated in Cook Ross’ unconscious bias training program, enough so that we felt that investing in sharing that training would be worthwhile. I found this training enormously helpful and I can see why addressing unconscious bias will have a huge impact on our organization

  4. Darin Latimore, Yale University

    This training has been a phenomenal experience for me because it’s done multiple things:
    1. It’s given me the tools, the data, and the studies around unconscious bias to frame a well-organized workshop to take back home.
    2. It has given me the knowledge to incorporate unconscious bias mitigation in our search processes so we have more fair, organized searches.
    3. It allows me to utilize strategies to mitigate unconscious bias when there is a rift or discomfort in departments. I can now go in and uncover what that might be about without placing blame on any one; to help people see that the issue can be resolved by looking at it with different sets of lenses.
    4. It gives me the ability to look at issues at hand with a different set of lenses: what biases may come into account when we are looking at departments and programs to fund or not fund
