[Rackham] We’re Biased. So Now What?: Personalizing and Mitigating Unconscious Bias

Session Is Over
Assembly Hall, 4th Floor, Rackham Building

Many of us are committed to DEI, and accept the extensive evidence from scholarly studies in psychology and neuroscience demonstrating that we all have unconscious biases that affect our interactions with others. The goals of this workshop are for participants to: 1) gain knowledge of societal biases and self-awareness of their unconscious biases, and 2) develop strategies to advocate for inclusion in light of unconscious bias.

Please note there is a pre-assignment for this workshop. You must take one Implicit Association Test (select one for a topic that is important to you) here: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html. Come prepared to discuss your results with a neighbor.

This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Space is limited. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
