Implicit Bias with Darlene Flynn
Implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner and can have detrimental impacts in how we interact with others with regard to race. Learn to identify implicit racial bias, understand its impacts, and develop strategies for interrupting it. This workshop will challenge participants to think critically about what unconscious stereotypes they act on and how this perpetuates a system of racial inequity. This workshop is 2-1/2 hours in length.
