At DPO, we believe that educating ourselves about discrimination and bias is an important part of preventing it. We also know that cultural competence is essential for effective teaching, management and leadership. Because UCLA’s classrooms and our communities are constantly changing, becoming culturally competent is an ongoing process. Ultimately, cultural competence rests on cultural humility and a willingness to keep learning.

Below are links to resources that members of our community have found useful in understanding discrimination, harassment and bias, their effects, and how to prevent them.

For more useful materials, please also visit the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion’s learning resources page, “Know.”

This page is constantly evolving, so if you have suggestions for materials you’d like to see included, please contact us.
