An Introduction to Unconscious Bias & Microaggressions
The JHM Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Health Equity is pleased to offer an unconscious bias course to fulfill the state requirement for relicensure. The course is entitled, “An Introduction to Unconscious Bias and Microaggressions” and will be virtual instructor-led via Zoom. You can search for the course in the myLearning catalog and are able to download a certificate of completion. The course is available as of 4/1/22.
Please note: If you have already completed the course as part of the FY21-22 diversity and inclusion strategic initiative (this is the course that would have been assigned to your myLearning “Training Plan”), you do not need to repeat the course.
Please feel free to contact Cheri Wilson, Program Director, Diversity, Inclusion, and Health Equity, if you have any questions.
