About this Event

Wednesday, September 25

8:00am - 12:00pm

YMCA Camp Terry

The Avarna Group believes equity, inclusion, and diversity are the cornerstones of a socially and environmentally just world. Through a collaborative workshop, hosted by the Issaquah Alps Trails Club, The Avarna Group will share insights and resources on equity, inclusion, and diversity with socially and environmentally conscious organizations and their leaders.

Navigate unconscious bias, cultivate an inclusive workplace, learn how to hire for diversity and inclusion, and practice having difficult conversations about race, class, and other identities with our suite of standard and custom workshops.

In this workshop, participants will be able to define and distinguish between diversity, equity, inclusion, and cultural competence. Participants will then learn how unconscious bias may impede our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. We examine ways that bias manifests in three lenses: (1) our individual thoughts and actions; (2) within our organizations, institutions, and agencies; and (3) in the conservation, outdoor recreation, environmentalism, camp and youth development sectors as a whole. Using activities and scenarios, we introduce and practice using tools for mitigating and interrupting bias in ourselves and challenging bias in others and within our organizations’ policies, programs, and procedures. Participants will leave with new language and concepts, as well as concrete examples of how bias could negatively impact the work they do and some ways to navigate bias.
