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

Wednesday, February 16, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EST

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 question then becomes, how do we not only become aware of our biases, but also work to overcome them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain knowledge of societal biases and self-awareness of one’s unconscious biases
  • Develop strategies to advocate for inclusion in light of unconscious bias

This workshop is designed for University of Michigan master’s students, doctoral students, and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
