Anti-Oppression & Microaggression Seminars
Canada is often viewed as a bastion of racial tolerance, long celebrated as a haven for racial minorities. The ongoing existence of anti-Black racism, institutionalized racism and discriminatory practices in various systems and sectors (i.e. within private sector organizations, education, policing, criminal justice, housing, and employment, etc.) serve as root causes of outcomes including poor health, low self-esteem, psychological trauma, and numerous injustices toward Black, Indigenous and racialized Canadians both in and out of the workplace.
Microaggressions are a subtler form of racism and TNT’s training will define microaggressions, while also examining their subtle qualities and how they compare and lend to racism. Through interactive workshops, participants will be encouraged to share experiences relating to stereotyping and colour blindness, and how these microaggressions, amongst others, manifest themselves in the workplace and within private and public sector organizations.
Implicit Bias & Recognition Training
There is a wealth of information supporting the efficacy of Implicit Bias Testing in helping people to recognize and understand their own implicit biases. It is widely accepted that everyone has implicit biases and that their effects can vary widely. Often, the impact of implicit biases can be subtle, including for instance, not listening attentively, dismissing certain points of view, or marginalizing certain opinions. On the extreme end of the spectrum these biases may impair an individual’s ability to treat victims in a fair or impartial manner. Implicitly®, offered through TNT, delivers tailored testing and detailed feedback reports, to enable individuals to better understand and manage their biases.
The aggregation of data available from the categories of testing selected by organizations can have a wider use in audits and evaluations, hiring, promotion, training and staff development. TNT supports test takers with private reports containing confidential results, as well as a handbook to support learning how to mitigate detected biases. Upon request, TNT can also provide various other supports to organizations including the provision of written materials, workshops, seminars, and for larger organizations, train the trainer programming approaches.
