Among the goals of the workshop are to:
- recognise classroom situations where implicit bias is likely to have an impact
foster learning environments which are inclusive and respectful of all people
- choose words that communicate that biased comments are not acceptable
- employ non-verbal communication modes to build trust and diffuse tension
Siara is an academic developer and Vivek is a doctoral student in Robotics, both at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
