About This Event
Implicit bias predicts and determines decisions and actions; it determines how we positively or negatively respond to the youth we serve. It is important to recognize that we all have biases; this is how we process and organize information, how we make sense of the world around us.
This interactive workshop will discuss how bias affects us every day and how we can adjust our perceptions to develop a more inclusive world view. During this presentation, we will:
- define bias and the different types of bias;
- understand how our perception plays a role in bias; and
- increase knowledge of how to recognize any personal bias.
