Throughout our lives, we are exposed to millions of messages about the world around us – messages that shape our perceptions of people, places, concepts and ideas. As a result, all humans possess a range of implicit associations that operate unconsciously, outside of our awareness, and often times in conflict with our explicit beliefs. Using an engaging and participatory structure, this division meeting will equip attendees with a deeper understanding of our unconscious mental processing; the ways in which these implicit associations impact our decision-making despite our good intentions; and what actions we can take to prevent and respond to the emergence of bias.

Facilitated by Preshuslee Thompson, The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity.

Coffee will be served beginning at 8 a.m.
