Implicit bias refers to buried prejudices that are surprisingly influential in the decisions that people make. Even when an individual considers themselves to be open-minded and accepting of others, they may still harbor biases that affect their feelings and actions—in both positive and negative ways. This session will explore common implicit biases, discuss how biases can influence choices and decisions, and consider evidence-based strategies for decreasing the influence of biases in day to day workplace interactions.

Lunch will be served. Registration required.
