Understanding Unconscious Bias
September 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Unconscious bias (also known as implicit bias), are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness. Everyone holds unconscious beliefs about various social and identity groups, and these biases stem from one’s tendency to organize social worlds by categorizing. This seminar will include methods to increase respect and reduce unconscious bias. This session will also offer strategies to help recognize unconscious bias and discuss the damaging effects unconscious bias can have in the world around you.
