Clinical Education Seminar: INVESTIGATING OUR UNCONSCIOUS BIASES, EMPOWERING BAME STUDENTS by Dr Musarrat Maisha Reza

We feel that we are open-minded, progressive individuals who are trying to make the world a little bit better. While the intention is great, sometimes, our unconscious biases hold us back. Despite our efforts to be inclusive, BAME students still feel a sense of isolation/loneliness or a poor sense of belonging because often as academics, we may say things or behave in ways that may offend, discourage or disempower them due to our unconscious biases. Are we ready to become conscious of our unconscious biases? Dr Reza will share her journey on peeling some layers of her unconscious bias through critical reflection and charting a path forward..

“HOW A PREDOMINANTLY WHITE FACULTY CAN EMPOWER BAME STUDENTS” by Dr Musarrat Maisha Reza

White faculty members or supervisors in senior management positions often shy away from mentoring BAME colleagues, students and proteges because it is ‘not their place to mentor them’. While it is true that representation and role models from underrepresented communities are critical to ensure greater diversity and inclusivity and race matched mentorships are useful, research increasingly highlights the benefits of cross-race mentoring in higher education institutes and how white mentors can bring about significantly positive outcomes for their mentees as well as themselves.
