Dec. 2, 2019: Overcoming Implicit Bias

by Michelle Saport  |   

Overcoming Implicit Bias Monday, Dec. 2, 9:30-11 a.m. Gordon Hartlieb Hall, Room 105 and via distance

Implicit bias describes the automatic associations individuals make between groups of people and stereotypes about those groups. Under certain conditions, those automatic associations can influence behavior, making individuals and institutions respond in biased ways even when we are not explicitly prejudiced, and have good intentions as well as nondiscriminatory policies and standards.

Please join us for a session exploring the steps we can take to diminish those biases and make our classrooms and campuses even more equitable and inclusive. Members of search committees especially encouraged to attend.

Session is open to faculty, post-docs, GTAs, administrators and staff.

Facilitated by Libby Roderick, associate director of CAFE and director of the Difficult Dialogues Initiative.
