Implicit Bias Workshop

Thursday, August 27, @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am


A basic introduction to Implicit Bias and Social Cognition. “Implicit Bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. These biases, which encompass both favorable and unfavorable assessments, are activated involuntarily and without an individual’s awareness or intentional control. Residing deep in the subconscious, these biases are different from known biases that individuals may choose to conceal for the purposes of social and/or political correctness. Rather, implicit biases are not accessible through introspection”. The Kirwan institute for the study of Race and Ethnicity.
Speaker: Kurtis Robinson, Spokane NAACP #1137 President
