The reality is that we all have implicit bias (aka unconscious bias) — attitudes and beliefs that occur outside of our conscious awareness and control that affects our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious way. The good news is that there are practical strategies we can employ to disrupt and reduce implicit bias. In this session we will utilize the Harvard Implicit Association Test, group activities, and practice strategies to identify, disrupt, and reduce implicit bias.

Participant Pre-Work: Participants will receive instructions to complete the online Implicit Association Test, conducted by Harvard University. Pre-work will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the sources of implicit bias.
  • Recognize how bias can influence interaction with others.
  • Identify practices to disrupt implicit bias.
