Implicit Bias: Uncovering Our Blind Spots

February 15, 2017
2:00 pm ET

This webinar is designed to promote awareness and understanding of implicit bias in our everyday interactions, such as the media, criminal justice, and hiring, along with an overview of microaggressions, microassaults, microinsults, and microinvalidations.

Following this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify implicit bias in various settings
  • Recognize microaggressions, microassaults, microsinsults, and microinvalidations
  • Discuss implicit bias as a contributing factor to health and healthcare disparities
  • Mitigate implicit bias with de-biasing techniques.

In preparation for this session, participants are strongly encouraged to visit Project Implicit and complete several of the Implicit Association Tests (IATs): under “Social Attitudes” continue as a guest and click “Go”. Complete the “Race IAT” and at least 2 other IATs of your choice.
