Join us on September 23 for a thought-provoking presentation on how to understand and recognize the potential impacts of implicit biases on ourselves and our approaches to supporting social causes.
Implicit biases are related to the ways in which people naturally process information about the world around them. Even so, they can lead us to relate to others in ways that are inconsistent with our values, such as by judging people based on their age, ability, social status, culture, gender, language, or race.
During this live, one-hour, online presentation, Professor Erik Girvan will draw on illustrations and lessons from social science research and a variety of work contexts to explain how having implicit bias is part of the human condition. Girvan will also describe practical and constructive approaches for reducing or eliminating the main ways that biases can prevent us from living up to our ideals.
SAGE is pleased to sponsor this event through our Citizen Project, our initiative to inspire, support, and equip people to work across differences to solve public problems. Special thanks to our co-sponsor: Classroom Law Project.
