This workshop - the first of a three-part series - will introduce key concepts including equity, diversity, inclusion, belonging and justice. Participants will be asked to critically reflect on how implicit, explicit and structural biases influence their practice and research. They will learn strategies to mitigate the influence of bias while co-creating safe/brave working and learning environments. The workshop will focus on the context of nutrition and health, while also being relevant to those in related disciplines.
