Fair Play Workshop
Do You Play Fair?
We welcome faculty, staff, scientists, postdocs and graduate students to explore how unconscious bias may impede student success in STEMM fields. Fair Play raises awareness about stereotypes and other racial biases in academia, which can inadvertently influence judgments about and behavior toward others. In the game, you are Jamal, a graduate student who experiences bias incidents as he navigates through his academic career and interacts with faculty, staff, and students on a college campus. Your success in the game depends on how you interact with colleagues within the game and how well you learn common bias concepts. After playing the game, workshop participants will engage in a facilitated discussion about addressing bias.
