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 presentation will explore what implicit bias is, how it differs from overt bias and how to recognize it in yourself.

This session is designed to help attendees learn how they hold power through their roles in institutions and how they can create change to affect implicit bias. During this presentation, attendees will:

  • better understand implicit bias and be able to recognize their own bias;
  • learn specific ways to address their own implicit bias; and
  • identify actions their school or organization can take to address bias.
