Have you ever heard someone say, “I don’t make assumptions about anyone.”? Have you said it yourself? Unfortunately, research shows us that the statement is nearly impossible to put into practice. At any given moment, we are exposed to millions of pieces of information, and neurons in our brain send signals at speeds over 100 mph. The very brain functions that help us navigate a complicated world can also lead us to follow unrecognized snap judgments and make decisions that recirculate patterns we may not even realize we’ve absorbed.
This dynamic webinar will explore what unconscious bias really is, why it exists, and what we can do about it. Participants will be invited to participate in exercises that examine our socialization and offer evidence-based strategies for mitigating bias in our personal and professional lives.
