We’re Biased. So Now What?: Personalizing and Mitigating Unconscious Bias

November 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Many of us are committed to DEI and accept the extensive evidence from scholarly studies in psychology and neuroscience demonstrating that we all have unconscious biases that affect our interactions with others. The question then becomes, how do we not only become aware of our biases, but also work to overcome them?
Learning Objectives:

Gain knowledge of societal biases and self-awareness of one’s unconscious biases
Develop strategies to advocate for inclusion in light of unconscious bias
