CQ® Your Bias: Use Cultural Intelligence to Manage Bias


Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Held virtually on Zoom

9:00 am to 2:00pm (EST) (Lunch break from 11:00 – 12:00)


The World Affairs Council of Western Michigan is proud to partner again with WOLVERINE World Wide to bring you this exclusive and timely workshop on Unconscious Bias and how to manage it with Cultural Intelligence.

We live in a diverse world and we all have biases. This is a natural fact of being human. The CQ® Your Bias virtual workshop helps individuals understand unconscious bias, and how to manage their bias during interactions with others. In this highly interactive course, participants explore personal biases as well as the systemic bias present in societal and organizational practices, processes, and policies.

Learning outcomes include:

  • UNDERSTAND why bias matters

  • RECOGNIZE sources of unconscious bias

  • IDENTIFY bias in our organizations/institutions

  • PRACTICE culturally intelligent strategies to disrupt bias


The CQ® Your Bias virtual workshop uses the Cultural Intelligence Center’s interactive, live course led by Emily Smith, Advanced CQ and Unconscious Bias Certified trainer through the Cultural Intelligence Center.





Due to this being a virtual workshop, we have 30 seats available. To reserve your seat(s) or to register for this event, please click this link and follow instructions for registration. Follow-up information about the workshop and details will be sent by Emily Smith once you've registered and reserved your seats. Questions? Email: rsvp@worldmichigan.org
