Recognizing privilege and bias

Recognizing privilege & bias webinar recording

Each of us has privilege of varying degrees based on our social groups. Privilege can be assigned based on race, ethnicity, gender, sex, physical activity levels, religion, wealth, and many other dimensions of diversity.

Our privilege allows for a societal advantage or comfort. Privilege does not minimize your personal efforts but provides additive social benefits that may be known or unknown to the beholder.

This webinar focuses on the recognition of:

  • Personal privilege
  • Privilege-based bias, and their impact on academic physical therapy

Panelists discuss:

  • Quantitative and qualitative evidence regarding the topics
  • Their perspectives on the positive and negative impacts within the academic environment

Learning objectives

  • Describe privilege-based bias as they relate to decision-making and interactions in the academic and clinical settings. (developing level)
  • Analyze the potential impact of privilege-based bias on workplace decision-making. (relating level)
  • Identify strategies to recognize privilege-based bias in self and others and control its influence in professional training and practice. (influencing level)
