How Does Our Unconscious Bias Effect Inclusion?

Concept Hacks: Learning How to Impact Your Sphere of Influence

In this workshop, students will work together with their peers to come up with innovative and creative solutions for tough issues like human trafficking, exploitation, unsafe migration etc. The aim of this session is to challenge the students to think about how they can make an impact in their own sphere of influence. What do they have in their own hands, that they can use to make an impact in much bigger global issues. At the end of the concept hack, students will be faced with a 1-2 minute elevator pitch, giving them an opportunity to pitch their ideas to the other groups.
