Understanding Implicit Bias - Wednesday, February 3, 2021

Social scientists determined we all carry unconscious biases due to a lifetime of exposure to cultural attitudes about age, race, ethnicity, religion, social class, gender, gender identity, physical abilities, and other social constructs. Our brains are incredibly complex. We know implicit bias and micro-aggressions associated with it are activated involuntarily, without awareness or intentional control. Psychologists posit Implicit Biases we have formed can be gradually unlearned through a variety of de-biasing techniques.

We invite you to explore your own implicit biases as an individual and member of society at large. Diverse social groups are exposed to preconceived cultural attitudes that result in small gestures or comments leading to increased negative social-emotional impacts. Join us as we explore ways to suspend these unconscious judgments about ourselves and others.
