Addressing Implicit Bias
October 24, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
What is implicit bias and how does it influence decisions? How might we be able to reduce the effects of implicit bias, or hidden bias, on our behavior? In this talk, we will first discuss how our brains can make judgments without our conscious awareness. We will then talk about implicit bias and how it can influence decisions. Finally, we will address how to make efforts to decrease the negative consequences of implicit bias in our everyday behavior.
