CARE - Implicit Bias WorkshopTuesday June 18, 2019
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM
How can someone's race, sex, age, and other characteristics influence the way we see and treat them even when we are genuinely trying to be unbiased? What concrete steps can we take to help prevent this from happening? To help answer these questions, Dr. Michael Andreychik will lead this workshop which will introduce the concept of implicit bias.
Through a mix of short presentations, hands-on activities, and discussions, we will explore some harmful side effects of how our brains naturally perceive, categorize, and draw inferences about the world, including other people. We will also examine when this kind of bias is most likely to occur. And, we will talk about what practical steps we can all take to try to reduce or eliminate it as well as what has been shown not to work.
