Topic: Implicit Bias
Description: This presentation addresses the definition of implicit bias – what it is, how it impacts our decision-making and behaviors, how it affects society on a macro-level, and ways to begin better recognizing how implicit bias functions in your own life. Implicit bias is neither good nor bad, but it can have both positive and negative effects if we are unaware of it. Research has shown that changing our biases is not an easy thing to do but changing our responses to our biases is well within our power if we work at it. This presentation will give you the tools to begin this process.
