Implicit Associations, Insidious Assumptions: Unintended Manifestations of Bias in Everyday Life
This 90-minute webinar will provide an introduction to unconscious associations that can lead to an affinity toward or prejudice against some groups of people. We will explore how our socialization process leads to the formation of conscious and unconscious associations, stereotypes, and prejudices that influence how we treat and view others in unintended ways. Participants will learn common ways that bias shows up in daily life and identify strategies that can help reduce the impact of implicit biases. During the session participants will complete and discuss an Implicit Association Test (IAT) – a tool that can help users identify hidden associations that can fuel bias.
