This workshop introduces academic audiences to the concepts of implicit or unconscious biases and assumptions about diverse groups of people by treating the application of such biases as a habit.

 

During the workshop, participants will:

  • Uncover their own biases
  • Discover the underlying concepts and language used in the psychological and social psychological literature to describe such processes
  • Participate in interactive discussions about the potential influence of implicit or unconscious bias in their department/unit
  • Learn evidence-based strategies for reducing the application of these biases

Advanced sign-up required by April 29.
