Implicit Associations, Insidious Assumptions: Unintended Manifestations of Bias in Everyday Life (Cancelled)

Explicit vs. Implicit BiasesThis 90-minute introductory webinar will provide an overview of the types of bias that humans experience with an emphasis on implicit bias. We will explore how our socialization process leads to the formation of conscious and unconscious associations, stereotypes, and prejudices that influence how we treat and view others in unintended ways. Participants will learn common ways that bias manifests in the form of subtle microaggressions and identify strategies that can help reduce the impact of implicit biases. During the session participants will complete and discuss an Implicit Association Test (IAT) – a tool that can help users identify hidden associations.
