Implicit Bias

Understanding how implicit bias works is one of the cornerstones of diversity, equity and inclusion principles. Implicit bias influences our decisions, actions and judgments, and can have negative impacts on marginalized and minoritized groups of people. Learn how our thought processes prioritize certain aspects of our interactions, communication patterns and evaluations, and come away with a variety of strategies that you can use to mitigate implicit bias. 

Learning Outcomes
By the end of this training, you will be able to...

  •  Explain what implicit bias is and how it works to influence our decisions, actions and evaluations.
  •  List five common implicit biases
  •  List five ways to mitigate implicit biases
  •  Explain how implicit bias has a negative impact on marginalized groups

This workshop is intended for staff and faculty who are interested in learning about implicit bias.
