We developed two free online courses on Microaggressions and Unconscious Bias that are offered through the Stanford Center for Continuous Medical Education office.
These courses are brought by Project Respect and the Longevity and Healthy Aging Research Consortium as a collaborative effort between Stanford School of Medicine and the VA Palo Alto Health Care System.
Microaggressions have Macro-consequences course seeks to provide education on microaggressions and how to respond to them. In this course, we will define microaggressions, explore the various types of microaggressions with examples, learn about the negative impact of microaggressions on individuals and organizations, and identify some strategies to respond to microaggressions.
Unveiling Unconscious Bias course seeks to provide education on unconscious bias. In this course, we will define unconscious bias, explore the various common types of biases with examples, learn about the negative impact of unconscious bias on individuals and organizations, and identify some strategies to detect and mitigate unconscious bias.
