Biased? Who, Me?! A Candid Look at the Problem of Implicit Bias
October 27, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Join us for an interactive online workshop to explore the origins of biases, how they can be measured, and how we can counteract them.
All of us have biases, and some biases have served us well as a species, protecting us from danger and enabling us to make routine decisions quickly. Other biases have not served us well in a modern, diverse society, where the tendency to feel more comfortable with people who are like us creates blinders of which we are often unaware. This workshop will explore the origins of biases, how they can be measured, and how we can counteract – in ourselves and others – those biases that stand in the way of progress against racism, sexism, homophobia, and other forms of discrimination in our society. This program has been designed for and will be delivered on Zoom. To learn more, please click here.
