CSU COAST partnered with ADVANCEGeo, an initiative formed to address the problem of sexual harassment and other exclusionary behaviors that lead to hostile working and learning climates in the earth, space and environmental sciences. During the Implicit Bias and Microaggression Workshop held on September 17, 2021, COAST graduate students learned how unconscious bias and microaggressions impact the workplace and were given tools to combat it while in school and during their professional roles following graduate school. Other CSU faculty and staff also attended the workshop. Attendees participated in small breakout groups and large group discussions centered on identifying implicit bias and creating strategies to prevent it from negatively impacting various academic scenarios.
