The Hidden Biases of Good People
December 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Most of us believe that we are ethical and unbiased but research has confirmed that, in reality, most of us fall short in the way we perceive ourselves. Our experiences shape who we are, and our race, ethnicity, gender, height, weight, sexual orientation, place of birth, and other factors impact how we view the world. Our hidden biases can guide our perception, behavior, opinions, decisions, and attitudes, even when we’re not aware of it. During the session, an overview of unconscious bias and examples of its impact are provided. You will be encouraged to examine your own biases and assumptions so that you can make more informed decisions.
